Apple plans to launch a new "iPad 3″ with a Retina Display this coming March, and then a second "iPad 4″ model in October that will ship with "killer applications.” Citing unnamed sources from within Apple’s component supply chain, DigiTimes on Friday reported that Apple is prepping both new iPad models for a 2012 launch.


God bless Apple and their ability to separate dumb, dirty hippies from their money.

Resolution so good that you can't see the individual pixels. The iPhone 4's have it.

It's very impressive pixel density. You really do need a magnifier to see the pixels at any range.

Bullshit. Apple will not update a model twice in one year.

True. It would cut into their crazed fanboi "planned obsolescence" model.

I could see it if they were significantly different.

Like Ipad 3 being an Ipad-sized device, but the Ipad 4 being larger (or smaller ie -it is the Ipod Touch5).

I bet that Chinese guy who sold a kidney to buy an iPad2 is kicking himself right about now.

"killer applications".

What's exactly are those? Sound scary.

Retina display is worth the upgrade.

Upgrade as in assuming you were cool enough to already have an iPad

Sounds about right seeing as they were buying up millions of retina displays and other parts late last year. Now would be a good time to buy their stock because they will sell everything they make. Apple cult members need their crack.

Apple. I love how those guys charge $100 for another 8 GB of storage.

Finally. LOL. Cowon has been putting 1080p on a 4" screen for a good long while with super AMOLED. Nothing new.

They said that about iPad 2/3 last year. I seriously doubt it. They'll stick with spring for iPad 3 and fall for iPhone5/iPod.

Acer Iconia tablet.

Micro SD expansion. Mini-HDMI out. Good OS version. Decent processing speed. Decent resolution. For cheap.

I look for a 7 inch iPad for about $200, to compete with the Kindle Fire.

They can't even sell an iPod for $200 much less something with the capabilities of a tablet.
