Really? Two New iPads and a Reboot of Apple’s Entire Product Portfolio Next Year?
Break out the salt lick for this one, because it’ll take more than a grain …
Apple typically updates many of its products each year, sometimes extensively, sometimes less so. But in 2012 it’s got big plans for a number of them. Supply chain sources tell the occasionally reliable Taiwanese trade mag Digitimes that Apple will “completely overhaul” its product portfolios this year — everything from the iPad and iPhone to the iMac and MacBook Air. And evidently it’s already hard at work on the iPad and has requested flat panel modules and LED light bars for two prototypes.
Details beyond that are slim indeed, though in a separate report Digitimes says we can expect two next-generation iPads next year: An upgraded iPad 2 around March and a true iPad 3 late in the third or fourth quarter.
Two iPads launched between March and December? Seems dubious to me. As I said, break out the salt lick. Still, you never know.
