Report: iPad 3 production has begun

Posted by Raven Lovecraft

Another day, another rumor about the iPad 3.

This one comes to us from Bloomberg, which reports to have heard from a source that the new Apple tablet is already in the beginning stages of production.

The report goes on to claim that by the end of February, the iPad 3 will reach max production capacity.

In addition, there is a new iPad 3 detail from Bloomberg - namely that the device will have 4G LTE connectivity.

This is in addition to the previous leaked information about the impending gadget. Apple will have a brand new display technology that will blow the iPad 2 out of the water.

In order to accommodate such a powerful display, though, Apple will need a more powerful backlighting system. As such, according to a report on iLounge.com, there will be an additional light bar under the hood of the new tablet.

That will force the device to be 0.7mm thicker than the super slim iPad 2. Surely for any Apple fan, though, that won't be a deterrent for owning what will be the highest-resolution tablet on the market.
