Rumour: iPad 3 to land by Xmas

Who doesn't love a good Apple rumour? Or even a bad one? This one centres around the iPad 3, tipped to come with at least one of the features we were hoping for in the iPad 2: that high-res Retina display as seen in the iPhone 4.


This would give the third-gen tablet a screen resolution of 2560x1920 pixels, over six times that of the current iPad 2 screen - and indeed, the original iPad.


The rumour comes from Taiwan's Economic Daily newspaper, which also states a launch for Q4 in this year, in time for Christmas shopping. Earlier rumours have also muttered the words 'glasses-free 3D display'...


Perhaps more likely is the second part of the same report, which says an updated MacBook Air will be available this month. This superslim netbook-but-sexier will come with Intel's new and more poweful Sandy Bridge processor, as well as Thunderbolt ports for faster data transfer.


Meanwhile, a 'limited' iPhone 5 is pipped to be launching in September, suggesting that the first iOS5 device might be further away than we thought...
