“Apple Inc.’s next iPad, expected to go sale in March, will sport a high-definition screen, run a faster processor and work with next-generation wireless networks, according to three people familiar with the product,” Tim Culpan, Peter Burrows and Adam Satariano report for Bloomberg.

“The company’s manufacturing partners in Asia started ramping up production of the iPad 3 this month and plan to reach full volumes by February, said one of the people, who asked not to be named because the details aren’t public,” Culpan, Burrows and Satariano report. “The tablet will use a quad-core chip, an enhancement that lets users jump more quickly between applications, two of the people said.”

Culpan, Burrows and Satariano report, “Apple is bringing LTE to the iPad before the iPhone because the tablet has a bigger battery and can better support the power requirements of the newer technology, said one of the people… The new display is capable of greater resolution than the current iPad, with more pixels on its screen than some high-definition televisions, the person said. The pixels are small enough to make the images look like printed material, according to the person.
