Too early to start talking about iPad 3 components?  Yeah, but whatever.  Digitimes says that Apple is certifying display manufacturers which include the normal players: LG and Samsung.

Apple has begun certifying components for iPad 3 and many Taiwan-based makers are actively participating. Some makers have already landed certification such as Radiant Opto-Electronics with LED backlight units, according to industry sources.

According to component makers, the timing for the launch of iPad 3 should be in 2012.

Taiwan-based firms think iPad 2 will become the mainstream and Apple will lower its price to compete with other tablet PCs.
