Various rumors about Apple's next generation tablet - dubbed iPad 3 - are swirling around the Internet and the latest one claims that the device will boast of amazing display and a faster processor, though the body size will be the same as its predecessor.
The New York Times reported that the iPad 3 is being testing inside of the company, citing an Apple employee, who never revealed the name, for Apple is not fond of leaks.
The new tablet will be “essentially the same size and shape as the iPad 2,” with an improved and 'truly amazing' screen and a faster processor.
