“The forthcoming iPad 3 will be thinner than the iPad 2, Cult of Mac has exclusively learned at the Consumer Electronics Show from a well-placed source,” John Brownlee reports for Cult of Mac.
“A major accessory manufacturer already working on iPad 3 cases has told Cult of Mac the upcoming device is measurably more svelte than the iPad 2, despite the fact that the iPad 2 is already Apple’s thinnest profile iOS device,” Brownlee reports. “The iPad 3 is widely anticipated to be the first iPad with a Retina display, doubling the resolution of the current generation iPad and affording a picture quality in which pixels are indiscernible to the human eye.”
Brownlee reports, “It’s worth nothing that the Retina display iPhone 4 was substantially thinner than the iPhone 3GS, despite a sizable upgrade in resolution. If the iPad 3 is not thinner than the iPad 2, the company will be bucking an almost half-decade long trend.”
