Apple is supposed to add new Taiwanese suppliers of iPad 3 components.

Tegra 2 based Honeycomb tablets are actually not beating the iPad 2 prices in most cases. To keep the pressure on Apple is according to Digitimes sourcing new IC designs from Taiwan.

According to industry sources Apple made deals with Novatek Microelectronics, Richtek Technology, Capella Microsystems (Taiwan) and Integrated Memory Logic (iML) to supply iPad 3 components.

According the report Apple is adjusting the cost structure to compete against the next Android tablet generation arriving in the second half of 2011. One of them will be Amazon. As reported Amazon is attacking on the price front.
