According to some reports Apple intends to introduce a successor to the iPad2 which is one of the best selling tablets in the world. Officially, Apple has not revealed anything about the new hardware and software packed with the iPad 3, neither any date proposing its release in the market.

DigiTimes, a Taiwanese publication has also quoted that it’s in the supply chain and the first units might arrive within the next three to four months. However with all these predictions and speculations, the actual plan of Apple still remains opaque. But there are a few possibilities that the new Apple iPad 3 may be featuring:

So we can also believe the technology will be arriving in the iPad too.

More Powerful Processor: it is also expected to be equipped with a powerful chip which is possible with the high resolution screen.

Screen Size: Earlier Steve jobs had clarified his views towards making a 7inch tab, which according to him was not a capable of giving the full user experience.
