According to the Korean Maeil Business Newspaper, Apple has started placing orders to suppliers for the bigger 4.6-inch display (compared to the current 3.5-inch display) with the retina display that’s been installed in “The New iPad”.
(Side note: what the eff is up with this stupid name for what SHOULD be the iPad 3? Did they not want to name it the iPad 3 simply because they want to push the 4G tech and so didn’t want 3 there? Steve Jobs would never have let this happen.)
The Samsung Galaxy S II uses a 4.6-inch display and I’m sure we’re all aware of what a threat Samsung is: so much so Apple had to sue to try and keep them off the shelf!
Apparently the Maeil Business Newspaper quoted “an unnamed industry source”. Is it just me, or does this seem rather sketchy? Apple trying to plant false evidence to throw off the competition?
Or perhaps there’s some poor guy now facing the wrath of Apple for leaking the news. Who knows – just like before the iPad 3 came out, all we can do is wait and see what eventually appears in the iPhone evolution.
