Apple iPad 3 Set to Release in February

According to a Citi analyst, Apple is prepping a next-generation iPad (probably called the iPad 3)  for a February release.

The new device would most likely be close to the same as the iPad 2  but include Apple’s high-resolution retina display technology found on the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, said analyst Richard Gardner in a research note first reported on by Business Insider and PCMag.

Gardner reportedly said that “several sources” told him that Apple could launch the iPad 3 as early as February, which would put its debut ahead of the first two generations of Apple’s tablet.

Apple’s iPhone 4 and 4S have what is classified as a retina display, with a resolution of 960 x 640 resolution, and a 326 ppi. Any display with a ppi of 300 or greater is said be so dense that pixels are indistinguishable from each other to the human eye at a distance of about 10 to 12 inches — and thus, those displays can be dubbed retina displays.

Other tablets have already been made with higher resolution screens by Apple rivals but nothing close to a retina display tablet has surfaced yet (Samsung is working on one though).
