A DigiTimes report claims that Apple has canceled their iPad 3 orders for the second part of 2011. The iPad 3 was rumored to be released along side the next generation iPhone which is expected to be released next month. But according to this report we wonâ€™t see the iPad 3 in 2011.
The delay is said to be because of poor yield rates on the double resolution â€œ2048×1536â€ Retina Display. This will force other tablet manufacturers to delay their devices release to compete with iPad3.
Apple was originally set to launch its iPad 3 in the second half of 2011 with a supply volume of 1.5-2 million units in the third quarter and 5-6 million in the fourth quarter, but Appleâ€™s supply chain partners have recently discovered that the related figures have all already been deleted, the sources pointed out.
