iPad 3 to launch in February, analyst sources claim

updated 02:00 pm EST, Thu December 8, 2011

Date would be month ahead of usual forecasts

The next-generation iPad will launch in February, says Citigroup analyst Richard Gardner. The analyst cites "several sources" on the matter, who back up the notion that it will have twice the screen resolution of its predecessor. Gardner comments that "there do not appear to be any significant technical hurdles remaining" to producing the extremely high-resolution display.

A February launch would be earlier than typically expected, however. The iPad 1 shipped in April 2010, while the iPad 2 arrived in March of this year; a next-generation device is most commonly expected to arrive within that window. One possibility is that the new hardware will ship from factories in February, rather than actually go on sale to the public that month.

    Two months

    Two months after Christmas could leave a bad taste in some people's mouths. Though they may also be bumping it up so that in 8 months they can move the iPad launch closer to Christmas like the iPhone. Especially since the iPad is a gift that is more givable than an iPhone.

    Well...

    everyone knows that the iPad 2 is an interim model anyway...like the iPhone 4S. Unless you absolutely have to have one right now, the smart money waits.
