iPad 3 Rumor Roundup: 8 Things You Need to Know
Display: Double the Resolution?
One of the first iPad 3 rumors to surface was about the tablet's display, with the Wall Street Journal reporting in August that Apple would use a 9.7-inch, 2048 x 1536 (QXGA) display in the new tablet (as opposed to the iPad 2's 1024 x 768 resolution). CNET and DigiTimes had a similar story in mid January, claiming that LG Display and Sharp will manufacture 6 to 7 million iPad 3 screens in the next two and a half months. With Android tablets announced at CES that sport 1900 x 1200 full HD screens, such as the Transformer Prime TF700T and the Acer Iconia Tab A700, Apple's slate could very well leapfrog the competition.
