    Apple suppliers hint at Sept debut for iPhone 5 and iPad 3 - Yahoo! News

    Activities of Taiwan-based suppliers suggest a September debut for two of Apple’s most anticipated mobile devices —the iPhone 5 and the iPad 3, a tech site reported over the weekend.

    Digitimes cited industry sources, who said that the upstream suppliers for the two devices appear to have begun to prepare materials for production.

    “The sources pointed out that Apple only plans to launch one model of the new iPhone, while iPad 3 has just recently been added to the production schedule with both set to be produced in small volumes in August and the volume will start picking up in September and October," the Digitimes report said.

    The report said that the component makers include:

    Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry), assembling the devices;
    Simplo Technologies and Dynapack International Technology, in charge of manufacturing batteries;
    TPK Holding and Wintek, in charge of touch panel modules;
    Catcher, in charge of chassis; and
    Largan Precision, in charge of webcams

    Simply supplies up to 65 percent of Apple’s total battery demand with Dynapack owning the other 35 percent.

    According to Digitimes' sources, the iPhone 5’s supply volume is estimated at six to seven million units in the third quarter.

    Combined with iPhone 4 shipments, the total iPhone shipments in the quarter are expected to reach 24 to 25 million units, with volumes to remain at the same level in the fourth quarter.

    In 2011, Apple is forecast to ship over 85 million iPhones.

    The Digitimes report also said the shipments of iPad series products including iPad 2 will likely to surpass 15 million units, while iPad’s supply volume for 2011 will likely break 40 million units.

    It added Apple’s upstream suppliers appeared to have recently increased their estimated supply volumes for the second half.

    This shows Apple is set to attack with another wave of new devices, before its competitors become strong, Digitimes quoted its sources as saying. — TJD, GMA News

    As always, incremental improvements lang yan. That is how Apple has been milking money from the Apple cults for years.

    Nah, I don't think the iPad 3 will be introduced that early. I know I read somewhere that Apple is gearing up manufacturing of the iPad 2 as they're anticipating a large demand when iOS 5 is released.

    Besides, in the 2011 WWDC Keynote Address just barely a month ago, they did say that 2011 will be the "Year of the iPad 2". Unless Steve Jobs' powerful enough to have any influence on the Gregorian calendar, 2011 doesn't end in Fall. :P

    Why are some people critical when Apple comes out with a new product (or update a product)? It's just one of those companies trying to make money. Much like Toyota, BMW, McDonalds, Nokia, HP, Sony, Nikon, etc. Don't splurge in a (FILL IN WITH YOUR PREFERRED BRAND, MAKE AND MODEL) if you don't have money or just want to be in.

    Apple Plans On Shipping 5 Million iPad 2's During Month Of July [REPORT] | Redmond Pie

    [SIZE="4"]Apple Plans On Shipping 5 Million iPad 2′s During Month Of July[/SIZE]
    By Goncalo Ribeiro | July 6th, 2011

    According to a report, Apple has ordered 5 million touch sensors for iPad 2′s, which suggests that 5 million iPad 2 devices will be shipped this month. This is yet another indicator that Apple’s second-generation device is continuing its healthy adoption.

    According to the report, 5 different companies will be supplying parts for the iPad 2, with some 1.4 to 1.6 million units being shipped by TPK Holding and Wintek:

    Shipments in June were also five million, with TPK Holding and Wintek supplying 1.4-1.6 million units each and the remaining by Cando, Sintek Photronic and Chimei Innolux (CMI), the sources indicated.

    Touch sensors are core to the way the iPad and as well as any other iOS device to function, since they enable users to interact with the system using multi-touch and touch gestures. Every iPad, iPod touch and iPhone come with a touch sensor built-in, therefore for 5 million touch sensors, there should be 5 million iPads. These healthy figures don’t only suggest that the iPad 2 is selling well, but they also prove that there won’t be a new iPad model replacing the iPad 2 anytime soon, despite previous claims that a new iPad with a 250dpi screen would be available in September, along with a next-generation iPhone.

    The iPad 2 was first announced in March of this year and became available shortly after. The multi-touch tablet sports a dual-core A5 processor, 512 MB of RAM, a 9.7-inch screen with a 1024×768 resolution and a front-facing camera. The device is also 33% thinner and 15% lighter than the previous iPad, which was introduced just a year earlier. Within a day after the release, retailers had allegedly sold out every unit.

    Over the last decade, Apple has outsourced most of its manufacturing to outside contractors, most of them based in the far East. While outsourcing provides its benefits, it also contributes to additional information being leaked, since more people have access to it. The amount of parts Apple orders for different products, for example, quickly becomes known, which provides several hints at where the Cupertino company may intend to take its product line.

    If you’re looking to get an iPad 2, now would be a great time to buy one. It won’t be replaced anytime soon after all. This in no way means that there won’t be a next-generation iPhone in September, since both products have different release schedules.

    Short answer: Because Apple as a company is arrogant, and its fanboys even more so.

    Now before Apple fanboys start hurling stones, Molotov bombs, grenades, and the kitchen sink at me, listen up.

    One of the earliest computers I used to program was the Apple IIe way back in the mid-80s. I learned my graphics stuff (desktop publishing and graphics design) on a Mac classic in 1989. In the 90's I used Mac clones such as Power Computing and Daystar for much of my graphics work. Today, I own the iPod, iPhone, and iPad 2.

    However, my programming work and sysad work always had me using x86 products, and I am a very loyal ThinkPad user since 1994. Today, I use a ThinkPad when working with Windows and Linux.

    My point? I am not an ignoramus when it comes to Apple products, neither am I a newbie. Been there, done that. I am the sort of person who uses whatever computer make is appropriate for a given task, and I appreciate each one for its capability. Apple products have their strengths in many areas, and it really stands -- hands down -- the best in graphic design (barring workstation-class specialist machines of course).

    However, it cannot be denied that partly due to Apple's culture and Steve Job's personality, the Apple marketing machine has taken great liberties in proclaiming Apple's greatness, and the Apple cult members are the most zealous of evangelists, to a fault: "Apple is the greatest. It always makes superior products. It's a lot more stable and Intel/Windows products. All other products are worthless" -- you get my drift.

    If people can only learn to temper their enthusiasm, then there wouldn't be any of these brand wars (Windows versus MacOS, Intel versus Apple, IOS versus Android, iProducts versus everybody else). These brand wars are a result of one group thumbing their noses down at the "unwashed masses" while the other group attempts to get even. It's also a result of some of the "unwashed masses" trying to correct certain "wrong impressions" propagated from the Apple camp (too many... it deserves its own thread ;) )

    Some have said that "Once you go Mac, you won't go back." Not really. To people who actually do real work, it doesn't matter what brand you use: you use that which is appropriate for a given task.
