Barclays analyst Ben A. Reitzes tells clients in a note — as reported by “AppleInsider” (http://www.appleinsider.com) that he thinks Apple a third-generation iPad with a high-resolution screen alongside a faster “iPad 2S” with the same resolution as its predecessors, as well as a discounted iPad 2.
He predicts that Apple will continue to sell the current 16GB version of the iPad 2 at a lower price, as a new entry-level model much like the company currently does with the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4. Reitzes also thinks Apple will roll out a faster iPad 2, akin to the iPhone 4S. This “iPad 2S” could include a faster processor and Siri integration, just like Apple’s latest iPhone, says Reitzes.
As for the iPad 3, he says to look for it around March. The third gen iPad will differentiate itself from the “iPad 2S” by featuring a high-definition Retina Display in addition to Siri integration and a faster processor, he says.
