With a recent report from Bloomberg claiming next-generation iPad production has officially kicked off with a high-resolution display, quad-core processor, and LTE functionality, a new report from Japanese publication Macotakara claimed an iPad 3 launch event would take place in early February. The report cited sources in the U.S. and Asian supply chain and said the new iPad will most likely be released in early March. The report from Bloomberg backed up the launch date by claiming production will reach “full volumes by February.”
