CNET reports that Apple's partners still have issues with the mass production of iPad 3 retina display.
According to the latest news the new display could be the largest hardware innovation of the 3rd generation iPad, but the production seems to cause problems based on leaked information by the Asian manufacturing suppliers.
The number of pixels could be four times higher due to the new display, so the resolution would increase up to 2048x1536.
This would mean about 264 ppi pixel density, which is less than 300 ppi, that is called 'retina resolution' by Apple, but the average user looks at his iPad from a larger distance, so the effect would be similar.
According to the news LG and Samsung is able to produce such a high resolution display, but mass production is still in the planning phase.
"It's a big challenge to the manufacturers. It's such a big jump in pixel density, which had never seen before." - says the source of CNET.
It's not sure that issues could be resolved until the introduction of iPad 3, but according to the source a plan of a 1600x1200 resolution display has been made as well, but it could be just a temporary solution.
Of course, this raises software related issues, Apple wants to avoid this solution by all means.
The production of displays could begin sometime in this quarter year by Apple's partners, which means that the assembling of the third generation iPad could be started soon.
