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.
