There is not even an iPad 2 here, but rumors about the iPad 3 already started about two weeks ago. Apple is supposed to change gears on the iPad release cycle and is going to unveil a new iPad 3 in September at the annual iPod event. Today AppleInsider reports that an analyst named Ming-Chi Kuo told them that the iPad 3 will have an Retina Display similar to the iPhone 4.
The iPad 3 would have a 2,048x1,536px resolution and the same 9.7-inch screen-size. Earlier rumors have said that the iPad 2 would already have this kind of display.
Kuo also through out there that Apple is considering a device that has a screen-size between the iPhone/iPod and the iPad. Whether that device is an large iPhone or small iPad is supposedly not settled.
A larger screen iPod touch could be put up against the upcoming Sony PSP 2, which has a 5-inch screen. Apple always says that 9.7-inch is the ideal size for a Tablet and anything smaller is not going to work.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
