New Wall Street Journal report confirms what I said all along. There will be no new iPad in 2011.
Rumors about an iPad 3 release in 2011 are still circulating. Two days ago though a report we featured said that Apple ran into issues with panel makers for the iPad 3 and delayed the launch to 2012. I doubt though that Apple ever planned to release two iPad models in the same year. Looking at the lack luster sales the iPad competition has it just is also not necessary.
The new iPad 3 will come in 2012. A report on the Wall Street Journal today confirms this scenario. According to the report the iPad 3 will have 2,048x1,536px resolution display, which is 4-times more pixels than the current iPad has.
Apple is supposed to run trail assemblies of the iPad 3 in October and has started to order the components for full production in early 2012.
We will see new faster Android Tablets running Android Ice Cream Sandwich in the Holiday shopping season, but Apple has time to counter the this new wave of Android tablets in Fall. A survey published this week by Robert W. Baird said that out of 1,100 potential tablet purchasers, 94.5% want the iPad. The iPad still defines what a tablet is and how it is supposed to work. Android needs to first get some innovation to make a leap ahead to break that image.
