Though the buzz on Apple's iPad 3 gone hush over last month, it seems that the rumor mill is still in action.

Since the previous news stated that Apple’s iPad 3 will not be available until next year, the buzz about the said tablet gone a bit quiet. However, there were rumors that the device will get a Retina Display and thinner batteries and form factors.

As reported by Taiwan Economic News, Apple signed deals with Dynapack International Technology Corp. and Simplo Technology Co. for battery packs for the third-gen iPad. This will provide iPad 3 with thinner and lighter battery packs than the ones currently used in iPad 2. Moreover, it should provide a longer life for users. However, it will cost the company by up to a third more. Regardless, the thinner and lighter battery packs are anticipated to enter production during Q1 2012.

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.

Apple is said to release its iPad 3 by Thanksgiving, while the iPad 2 will be discounted.

It was alleged that Apple will break its cycle of releasing one iPad per year, as the Cupertino-based company is set to unleash the iPad 3 this year. The next-gen iPad is said to feature high resolution Retina Display, and it was also rumored to be an “iPad Pro” model. The mentioned iPad Pro unit will compliment its predecessor – the iPad 2 – rather than replace it entirely.

Taiwan Economic News reported that Apple’s iPad 3 could launch at iPad 2’s current price, while the latter will be discounted. This will be done to clear the device’s stock inventory. The report also added that the third-generation Apple tablet will arrive at the shelves “by Thanksgiving or next year.”

However, speculations will remain as it is. That said, people will have to take these information as a grain of salt for the time being.
