iPad 3 With 2048x1536p Display Coming By End Of 2011?

Apple’s third-generation iPad could bring a 2080x1536p resolution display and it is possible that the tech giant will launch its new tablet before Christmas, reports suggest.

Asian research company CLSA certainly considers it a possibility, commenting: “While most vendors appear fixated on matching the specs and features of iPad2, our checks suggest Apple will release iPad3 in time for the holiday season, sporting a better display and LTE capabilities.”

Despite these speculations, it is far more likely that Apple will launch an improved iPad 2 version with a higher resolution display rather than a third-generation tablet. Information is too scant for the time being so as to predict what Apple products will hit the stores in six months time.

It is true that a display with such a high-resolution will definitely improve viewing quality, but it will also drain the battery. If Apple is indeed planning to integrate such a display in its iPad 3, the company must have found a solution for the battery life issue.

More and more rumours are also suggesting that Apple is planning to release a new MacBook Air in the near future, and the discounts Best Buy has offered for MacBook Air computers could add weight to these rumours.

The Cupertino-based company could release a new MacBook Air in June and ship 380,000 units in the first shipment batch, PC World reports, citing Economic Daily sources.

Previous it was thought that Apple could launch ultra-thin MacBooks powered by Sandy Bridge processors and Thunderbolt technology, and perhaps the upcoming MacBook Air units will indeed integrate these features.
