It only seems like yesterday that the iPad 2 arrived, but already there is plenty of talk of its successor. And if you are hanging on for iPad version three (better screen? faster processor? higher res camera?) you might have a little longer to wait.
According to DigiTimes, a shortage of Retina Displays (as seen in the iPhone 4 and expected to appear in the iPad 3) from suppliers LG and Samsung mean that the iPad 3 will now definitely appear no earlier than Spring of 2012. Also work on the new A6 chip is proceeding more slowly than expected too.
So it now sounds as if there will be no iPad 3s until at least 2012.
