    [FONT=&quot]According to a report on MacRumors today, The China Times has said that Apple will be releasing the iPhone 5 in the second week of September 2011, with a first order run of 4 million units. The China Times adds that Apple’s suppliers are at the moment readying 400,000 trial run phones prior to the launch. Many recent reports emanating from Apple’s supply chain have been indicating a mid-September release for the iPhone 5, so all we’re really waiting for now is the official announcement from Apple. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]The second part of this story on MacRumors may well surprise some people though, as it talks in a very matter-of-fact way about the iPad 3’s release being delayed until after the Thanksgiving holiday in the US this year because of issues with component shortages, which would mean a possible late November, early December release date. I know that there are still many sceptics out there who don’t see how Apple could possibly release two iPads in the same year, but it’s starting to look more and more likely that this is indeed exactly what it plans to do.[/FONT]

      I didn't upgrade to the iPad 2, because I was told I thought Apple might reduce the release time between two and three. I don't think it is about greed. They do not want the current iPad to ever be considered equal or less than the competing tablets. So, I would say it is more about momentum.

      Yes but I would like at least a year without smug friends of mine going oh is that the iPad 2... I have the 3...

      MacRumours is exactly that - rumours. And there are a lot of them.

      Personally, I would be very surprised if another iPad isn't released along with the iPhone 5 in September.

      Well, I wonder if the iPad 3 will be jailbreakable. Because of the online verification and OTA updates, seems like Jailbreaking is going to get tougher and tougher with iOS 5.
    8. Confucious
      The iPad3 will be very similar to the 2 in terms of JailBreaking is my guess.

      Even if the block the PDF bug and they might not allow any non-OTA updates which would make things a lot tougher.

      Currently my iPad 2 is only jailbreakable on 4.3.3 and I can't upgrade to anything higher, which makes me sad. It would be annoying if I couldn't have a jailbreak on 5.0 even on the iPad 2!
