iPad 3 first units might land in December

I was thinking a few weeks back that there was no way that a new iPad would be coming early in the next year. Rumors have been pointing to a new iPad 3 coming in March. I thought that was too early. Then today I saw a demo of the new Asus Transformer Prime and that tablet is very impressive. I think that Apple might be reading the next iPad early to fight off Asus and other Tegra 3 packing tablets running Android.

CNET cites sources today that claim the screen for the iPad 3 is under production right now. The new screen is supposed to be a 10-inch unit with very high resolution of 2048 x 1536. That is an insane resolution for such a small panel and will usher in a new benchmark for clarity, assuming it works well.

The problem with this screen is that it will be hard to produce such a complex and high-resolution screen in the quantities that Apple needs. I also fear that there may be quality concerns and that the screen will drive the price for the iPad up significantly. The source of the rumor says that unified iPad 3 units could be complete by December.
