New Apple iPad 3 'edges closer as display technology work starts'
Consumers could start to plan the trading in of a mobile device if they are to invest in the new Apple iPad 3, which is said to be edging closer to production.
According to CNET, work on the high-resolution screens that will be included on the model is now underway.
It suggested that Apple has a 7.85-inch display lined up for the third incarnation of its famous tablet device.
Richard Shim, an analyst at DisplaySearch, told the online publication that "panel production has started" and added that a total of three suppliers are working on the job.
"We could start seeing finished devices produced in December and then being ready to be shipped in January, with volumes gearing up in February and March," he explained.
Apple's most recent release was the iPhone 4S, which hit the shelves last month in seven countries – the UK, US, Germany, Australia, Canada, Japan and France.
