According to a report on the Wall Street Journal, Apple’s next generation iPad is going to launch its trial production this October. Apple has already ordered key components for the eventual iPad 3, which would be available at retail at the beginning of 2012 instead of this holiday season as some previous reports suggested. Particularly, the tablet’s 9.7-inch display is reported to be going up from 1024×768 on the original iPad and iPad 2 to 2048×1536. It also sports with a previous report that the iPad 3 had been pushed back to a 2012 launch because of manufacturing problems with the tablet’s planned Retina display. One component supplier cited in the report estimated that Apple would try to produce some 1.5 million iPad 3 handsets this year, with production into next year, ahead of an official release in 2012. In related news Boy Genius reports today, citing “high-level AT&T sources,” that an AT&T Vice President has confirmed to several employees that the iPhone 5 is going to launch at the beginning of October.
