Hands on: iPad 3 Review

A number of reports suggest we could be seeing the iPad 3 in just two short months, and it will come with a much higher resolution screen.

According to Citi analyst Richard Gardner Apple is all set to show off its iPad 3 in February and according to several sources he has spoken to, the next-gen tablet from Apple will have double the resolution of the iPad 2.

These details emerged from a research note from Gardner which was spotted by Business Insider, in which Gardner also says that Apple have no technical hurdles left to jump to get the new iPad into production and we should be seeing it launched in February.

It would mean that we would be seeing an iPad with a resolution of 2,048x1,536 pixels giving it 264ppi which is not quite the 326ppi of the iPhone’s Retina Display, but would still be double that of the iPad 2.

Elsewhere it has been reported that Foxconn will begin production of the iPad 3 in January with production ramping up to produce almost 10 million units in the first quarter of 2012.

This will mean that production of the iPad 2, while remaining high in Q4 2011 at around 14-15million units, will drop dramatically to just four million units in Q1 2012.

Would a vastly improved display be enough to get you to buy an iPad 3? Let us know in the comments.

I would, as long as the cheapest model isn't &#163500.

No. Nothing could convince me to buy an iPad. I have a TouchPad 32GB. It cost me &#163150 with the wireless dock and BT keyboard and case. It runs WebOS. It runs Android. It cost peanuts;)

Are we sure that "double the resolution" isn't just marketing-speak for "double the pixels", which would mean 1536x1152? I wouldn't put that past them!

I used to work for a detergents manufacturer. When I saw tonnes of laundry detergent being stirred in industrial vats I always reminded myself that it all went down the drain, every last drop, every day. So 10 million iPads in a quarter, all destined for landfill? Or do they recycle these things. Like Canon claim to make calculators out of old copiers, etc. Maybe TR could follow some of this tech from the store shelf, via the coffee table, through the bottom of the sock drawer and onward to its ultimate destination.
