Further signs emerged today that the iPad 3 will be the major upgrade many are hoping for, as more shadowy insiders familiar with matters at Apple came forward to spill the beans.

According to three tech deepthroats cited by our favourite sober-suited business types at Bloomberg, the third-gen Apple tablet will feature a higher resolution screen with “more pixels...than some high-definition televisions” and which are “small enough to make the images look like printed material”.

The loose-lipped ones also corroborated long-standing rumours that the tablet will feature a quad-core processor to let users “jump more quickly between applications”. The extra brawn on board means that videos “begin playing almost instantly,” we’re told.

Completing the package is support for 4G networks for super-fast browsing. This is purportedly coming to the iPad before the iPhone because the slate’s larger battery means it’s better equipped to cope with the demands with the resource-hungry, next-gen technology.

So when will you be able to buy this wonderslate? Well, echoing separate reports from earlier this month, Bloomberg claims its already being manufactured, with production set to peak in February ahead of a likely street date in March.
