The plot thickens. The iPad 3 will likely have a retina display and it is likely made by Sharp.
Based on the latest rumors, Apple will unveil the new iPad 3 early next month and it will have a RetinaDisplay as the main new feature. Photos of the alleged retina display part for the iPad 3leaked last week along with a back panel. Now iLab (via9to5Mac) has compared the leaked parts and they fit making it a bit more likely that the leaked parts are legit. They still could though be from an early prototype and not the final parts for the upcoming iPad 3.
Without a Retina Display, I do not see a reason to release a new iPad. Only a 9.7-inch display with 2,048x1,536px is a major step towards holding a paper magazine in your hand and not a tablet. With the display upgrade Apple is also seen upgrading the two cameras in the iPad 3. The higher resolution requires a faster CPU and also a bigger battery.
We do not expect any other major improvements in the new iPad 3.

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.
