IPad 3 with Retina Display again said to be launching in early 2012

As has become commonplace over the past few years, The Wall Street Journal again confirms numerous reports that Apple is preparing a new iPad tablet to launch in early 2012. Earlier reports from multiple sources claimed that Apple’s third-generation iPad, which had supposedly been targeted for a fall or winter 2011 launch, had slipped back to Apple’s now-customary spring launch time frame next year. Apple had reportedly been having issues with its display partners, who are unable to manufacture the iPad 3’s alleged 2,048 x 1,536-pixel display quickly enough to meet the company’s volume demands for a launch this year. Apple is still thought to be on track for a fall iPhone launch however, with at least one new smartphone expected to be announced next month.
