iPad 3 with 2048×1536 Retina Display?

Kuo now claims that iPad 3 will deliver a Retina Display-like quality and resolution doubling to 2048×1536, an enhancement originally thought to make it into the more immediate release of iPad 2.

The iPad 2 is a bit far from shipping yet, but The Wall Street Journal has said that instead of getting a retina display, the 2nd generation iPad will offer a thinner and anti-reflective screen for better viewing in sunlight.

Depending on who you believe, the iPad 3 may arrive as early as this September, accelerating Apple’s iPad release timeframe from a 1 year to 6 month delivery schedule. Another analyst has also predicted a true Retina Display for the 3rd generation iPad, but he pegged its release in 2012.

Meanwhile, the iPad 2 is widely expected to be released by April. Keep your fingers crossed!
