Apple’s second-generation tablet is barely out of its pristinely white box but iPad 3 rumours are already kicking into overdrive with latest analyst reports suggesting the device will launch without the much desired Retina display.
Following the inclusion of forward and rear mounted cameras, a slimmer form factor and a dual-core processor, many iPad 2 adopters were left disappointed that the second generation device had not plumped for an iPhone 4-esque Retina display as had been widely expected.
Now, however, those holding out for the third generation tablet look to set to be handed the same disappointment as a number of industry analysts report the mooted device will once again not feature the visually impressive screen.
All may not be downcast for the iPad 3’s display qualities though as Digital Trends suggest: “Apple is speculated to be considering using an AMOLED panel or Full HD resolution support for the coming tablet.”
Other rumours to date around the iPad 3 have surrounded the tablet’s predicted release date. Whilst many predict the third-generation of the market dominating tablet device will hit store later this year, most likely September, others have suggested Apple will retain its February product cycle.
