If your looking to upgrade from the original iPad or the newer iPad 2, then news that the upcoming iPad 3 has been in full production in Foxconn's Chinese factories since the beginning of 2012, taking a break for the Chinese New Year later this month, and then restarting in February. Expected to hit the market in March, anonymous sources said that the iPad 3 will feature a high-definition screen, a quad core processor, and support LTE (long-term evolution) networks. This sounds like a big improvement over its predecessors.

From release/information:

Apple's manufacturing partners have begun production of the iPad 3, which will have a faster processor and work with LTE networks, a report has claimed.

Bloomberg reports that production of the device began this month and will reach full volumes some time in February, according to a source

The report, which focuses on claims made by three separate anonymous sources said to be "familiar with the product" also claims that the third-generation iPad will use a quad-core processor and support LTE (long-term evolution) networks.

According to one source, Apple wants to put an LTE chip in the iPad before the iPhone because the larger device's more capacious battery will be better able to handle the power demands of the new chip.
