Is This iPad 3 Hardware, and What Can We Learn From It?

As we were just discussing when telling you about the possibility for an early March iOS 5.1 release, that timeframe coincides with when Apple may choose to reveal the next iteration of the iPad. We’ve heard plenty of rumors about what Apple could be planning for this iPad 3 hardware, from the possibility of it getting a high-resolution Retina display, to signs of a new processor that are raising questions about the chance of seeing a quad-core component. Today we get a look at what may be the iPad 3’s rear panel, and see what it could reveal about the tablet.

While it doesn’t directly confirm that the iPad 3 will get see a boost to its screen resolution, the modification of display mounting points compared to those on the iPad 2 suggests we’re dealing with a new component here. Similarly, repositioned screw holes for the tablet’s logic board seem to reflect a substantially-redesigned part, now much narrower than before. There’s no direct evidence supporting it, but there’s speculation that the move might be an attempt to free-up space for a larger battery. Finally, it looks like some change has been made to the tablet’s camera, but again, we don’t know just what.
