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.

About the Geek Mind

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.
