iPad 3 in Production for a March Debut


Apple Inc. (AAPL)ís next iPad, expected to go on sale in March, will sport a high-definition screen, run a faster processor and work with next-generation wireless networks, according to three people familiar with the product.

The companyís manufacturing partners in Asia started ramping up production of the iPad 3 this month and plan to reach full volumes by February, said one of the people, who asked not to be named because the details arenít public. The tablet will use a quad-core chip, an enhancement that lets users jump more quickly between applications, two of the people said...

Mass production began at the start of this month, with factories running 24 hours a day in China, one of the people said. Manufacturing will halt over Chinaís Lunar New Year holiday this month and then ramp back up to a peak in February, the person said...

A hi-def screen? Dayum! - The existing one is pretty darn good IMO.

"More power" is always nice, but it's no slouch today.

I guess the price will remain the same but I'm not about to upgrade unless there's a real game changer in there.

I have the first one. I never used it much, except for reading the odd book. Then I started flying. All the software you can get for aviation is simply amazing, and the iPad more than paid for itself.

I will be upgrading. I like the increased battery life idea. I like the increased processing power. The camera is nice enough for Skype, but I wish it was on a tether and detachable. It's stupid to hold the iPad up and wave it around to get a picture. Don't care about the video. It's perfectly fine as it is, and more video means more processing overhead--decreasing battery and increasing processor load. Oh well. Overall, it's enough for me to upgrade.

If I owned the second one, I would not be upgrading. Nothing compelling in relation to that, except for the video, and that's not compelling enough to me.

And no, I won't be standing in any lines. Never have. I will simply pre-oder so it comes to me.
