Although for quite some time it did look like the iPad 3 would be launching toward the end of 2011, it now appears as if the device will actually be launching in the early part of 2012. The good news for consumers is that the device will now launch complete with the retina display that has been so popular on the unlocked iPhone 4 that the company has released. A number of reports from multiple sources have claimed that the third generation of the popular Apple iPad was looking at a fall or winter 2011 launch, but it now appears as if those rumors were halted because of manufacturing issues that have to do with the highly popular retina display. Apple has reportedly been having a number of issues with their manufacturers to get things running in a smooth and suitable fashion.
The problem came when they went to manufacture the iPad three 2048 x 1536 pixel display that was one of the selling points for the device. They were unable to manufacture the screen quickly enough for the device, and as a result Apple is forced to halt their operations and launch at a later date. It has been customary for the company to launch their devices during the spring, but it now looks as if we are looking at an early release next year perhaps before the spring during the later part of the winter.
It will be interesting to see how quickly they are able to launch the device in 2012. Apple is not a company that likes to fall behind their release schedule, and all of the problems that they inhabit their manufacturing companies over the course of the last few years have to have been wearing on them. It is not currently clear which manufacturing companies the problem with most prominently, but expect that information to be leaked at some point in the near future.
