We are starting to see the first shipment notifications this week of “new iPads” departing from Chengdu in Western China. Chengdu, you will recall, was the site of a deadly Foxconn explosion on an iPad 2 assembly line last summer.
This particular model was a single 16GB Black Wi-Fi with engraving. Apple calls this a “Personalized iPad with Wi-Fi 16GB – Black (3rd generation)” rather than just “iPad.”
