According to ChinaTimes Apple has already ordered over 65 million displays for its next generation of iPad. The upcoming iPad 3 ( name rumored ) is supposedly said to carry a higher resolution 2,048 by 1, 536-pixel Retina display. The over-all design of the tablet is expected to remain the same, but the big new feature here will obviously be the new Retina display. LG and Samsung have been rumored to be manufacturing the display.
To take into consideration Apple had ordered only 40 Million iPad 2 displays prior to launch, thats a whopping 66.6% increase. Also to take into consideration that iPad 2 and the original iPad are the most popular and the number one tablet sold, in sheer numbers. Apple sold over 15 million iPad 2 units in the holiday quarter alone.
If the specs claimed for the iPad 3 are even halfway there the expect the competition to fizzle down for the tablet from cupertino. The only other hope will lie with the rumored Galaxy Tab 3 and Android ICS, but not to anyway scratch the surface of iPad’s loyalty.
