Apple pushes the release of iPad 3 devices not later than 2012.

Taiwan-based publication Digitimes reported recently that Apple has just canceled its iPad 3 supply schedule for the second quarter of the year, which means the next-generation iPad is unlikely to be available until 2012.

According to the source, the yield rate of a 9.7-inch panel with a Retina display resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 may be the main reason for the delay, since Apple’s other supply partners – Samsung Electronics and LG Display – have been unable to reach a good yield rate.

With the MacBook Air adding up the latest generation Sandy Bridge processors, Apple might be planning to build orders of over 1.5 million products by summer.

According to Digitimes’ current rate record, Apple will be having 1.2 million – 1.5 million MacBook Airs to be shipped in summer. Apple also estimated that if the shipping becomes successful, they will be able to attain 13 million to 14 million of shipped MacBook products before the year ends. And if they would perform well on this plan, they might hit 15 million.

The battle for the best ultra-portable laptop is heating up, as HP is set to unveil at least two Ultrabooks to take on Apple's MacBook Air.

The war between ultra-portable laptops is firing up, as HP is anticipated to be the first to release laptops based on Intel’s new Ultrabook category: Slim, affordable laptops, which can be a worthy alternative for Apple’s MacBook Air. DigiTimes also reported that HP is slated to launch at least two Ultrabook models prior to ASUS UX21.

Sources also informed DigiTimes that HP Ultrabooks will use Intel’s Core i7-2677M and i7-2637M dual-core CPUs. However, the chip maker’s guidelines for Ultrabooks indicate that the HP models will be 0.8-inches thick, with long battery-life, and should be tagged under $1,000.

With Apple expected to unveil a MacBook air refresh in the coming days, the timing of this news makes it very interesting. The race for the best ultra-portable laptop is about to start.

Rumor alert! Sony's PlayStation 4 is said to feature a motion control technology, and will hit the shelves by 2012.

DigiTimes reported today that Sony’s manufacturing partners will begin working on its next-generation game console later this year. Though further information are still unavailable, it is said that the rumored PlayStation 4 will feature motion controls like Microsoft’s Kinect.

Moreover, Foxconn and Pegatron Technology – which were previously appointed to manufacture PlayStation 3 – is said to create the upcoming PS4. With regards to the number of units to be released, DigiTimes cited that Sony will launch at least 20 million units by next year. As for Sony PlayStation 4’s release date, it is said that the company will not launch the console earlier than 2013. But with Nintendo Wii U and Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox set for a 2012 release, Sony is in best interest to speed up PS4’s process to remain in the competition.

Other than these, no further details are currently available. But GADG promises to keep you posted, so just stick it here for more PlayStation 4 updates.
