The popular technology blog DigiTimes released information on Monday that stated that the company Apple is looking to release the third iteration of their popular tablet computer, the Apple iPad, during the upcoming fall season. They also reported that the company is more than likely looking to add a second partner for manufacturing for the iPad line, after demands during the last release were not met by the current manufacturing company report went as far as to say that the current unlocked iPhone 4 manufacturing companies, which are Pegatron Technology and Quanta Computer, seem to be in the lead for the most likely companies to lay in the bed.
I know rumors have been going around saying that the iPad 3. However the information that was released today seems to suggest that perhaps a device that is coming out this fall will not be the next version of the iPad, and instead will be slightly different version of the device with varying features compared to previous versions. Interesting to see what kind of grades the company has to offer when they released this newest version of a computer. They can be quite difficult to put together an estimate, without knowing exactly what the company is planning. Perhaps they will take a similar approach to the approach they have taken their smartphone, the Apple iPhone. Although, that you release new versions of the phone seemingly every year for the last few years, the company does not release the newest version. In fact, they seem to release only slight upgrade in between the releases of larger version upgrades of the device.
It will be interesting to see if they take a similar approach to the iPad that they have to the iPhone 4 unlocked. Apple seemingly has a stranglehold on the tablet industry, and if they can’t continue to produce minimal upgrades at a steady pace, will likely continue to buy the product. So far, that strategy has worked with them in other industries, and at this time there is no reason to think that it will not continue to work for them the tablet industry, a fast changing industry that Apple seems to be at the helm of.
