iPhone 5 and iPad 3 Set to Launch September
Happy July 4th everyone! We have some iPhone 5 and iPad 3 news to get you through the holiday!
According to Digitimes, Taiwan-based companies responsible for making components of the iPhone 5 and iPad 3 have begun to prepare materials for the production for the two devices, which are likely to launch in September and hit the market in October.
The iPhone 5 will sport a Sony-sourced 8 megapixel CMOS (complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor) camera sensor and the iPad 3 will feature a 250 dpi display, which allows for a thinner and lighter design, according to Digitimes’ sources.
Their sources have also stated that 6-7 million iPhone 5 units are expected to be shipped. Add iPhone 4 shipments to that number and the total iPhone shipments in the third quarter are expected to be around 24-25 million units and carry over to the fourth quarter this year.
Apple is expected to ship more than 15 million iPad series products with the supply volume set to break 40 million units in 2011.
