iPad 3 to feature quad-core processor, LTE support, Retina Display According to Bloomberg, the upcoming iPad 3 will go on sale in March with much upgraded features.
The tablet will see a bump to a quad-core processor, have LTE 4G support, and a high-resolution Retina Display at 2048x1536.

Manufacturing partners in Asia have already begun producing the device with expected peak volumes to be hit in February.

Retina Display, says Bloomberg, will "have pixels small enough to make the images look like printed material, according to the person. Videos begin playing almost instantly because of the additional graphics processing."

Apple has sold over 40 million iPads in just two years, making it the clear market leader.

No...they don't play at all; there is no flash player!

As for the resolution, it actually won't do what it claims because paper does not look the same as a screen; especially in bright sunlight or a dark room.

...and quad fold the cost to actual benefit to consumer.

Round & round we go again between the Apple fan base & those of various other manufacturers. How long did Apple folks have to wait till they got a comparable tablet with specs to that of the Samsung device? I know, I know, the resolution, but the rest is pretty close. But I can also guarantee the price won't be.
