iPad 3 Case
According to the Japanese Website Macotakara, the picture above is a Case for the Next Generation iPad. They also claim that the next generation iPad will be thicker and therefore will not be compatible with all current iPad 2 cases. They believe that the front screen will be the same as the other iPads, with the same types of corners and bezel as well. I am very sceptic about this rumor, what do you guys think.

Apple Inc. is adding Sharp Corp. as a maker of screens used in the next-generation iPad, people familiar with the situation said Thursday, as the U.S. consumer electronics company moves to diversify component suppliers for its products.

According to the Taiwanese website “Economic Daily News” two potential suppliers: Korean LG Display and Taiwanese AU Optronics, have recently sent samples of their iPad Mini displays to Apple. The Taiwanese website said Apple has already set the specifications for the smaller tablet and will be shipped early next year. It will get a 7.85 Inch Display and gets the same resolution as the iPad 2. Steve Jobs earlier said on a Q4 2010 earnings call that a 7 inch iPad will be meaningless “It is meaningless unless your tablet also includes sandpaper, so that the user can sand down their fingers to around one quarter of their present size“. But this is not the first time Steve Jobs denied a possible product. Steve Jobs did this with a lot of products until Apple was ready to launch them, such as the video iPod or even the idea of tablet PC itself. » 7.85-Inch Screen Rumors: iPad Mini?
