Apple iPad 3 in Testing, Features "Truly Amazing" Display

As the release day for the third-generation iPad approaches, the rumour mill is starting to spin frantically; the latest buzz comes from an anonymous Apple employee, cited by the NYTimes, who claims to have seen the iPad 3 which is currently being tested.

According to the insider the upcoming tablet features "essentially the same size and shape as the iPad 2," but they describe the display as "truly amazing."

In addition, the iPad 3 is said to sport a faster processor, most likely Apple's proprietary A6 quad-core model. Basically, all these rumors have been flying around tech news websites for a while now, but its good to get apparently more solid confirmation.

The size and shape could change a little, as revealed by the recent leaked pictures of iPad 3 back housing. The amazing screen is thought to have Retina Display, or at least very close, which will give it at least twice the pixel density of the iPad 2 - or four times the pixel count.

The Wall Street Journal's AllThingsDigital recently revealed that Apple will be hosting an iPad 3 launch event in the first week of March, The event is believed to be taking place at the Yerba Buena Center for Arts in San Francisco, California.
