“One parts supplier claims to have already obtained the screen part for Apple’s next-generation iPad,” AppleInsider reports. “The alleged iPad 2 LCD screen sells for $218.19 from Globaldirectparts.com, as noted by MacRumors, though the part is currently out of stock.”
“Since the website currently offers replacement screens for the original iPad for $63.35, the higher price of the so-called ‘iPad 2 screen’ could possibly corroborate reports of a higher-resolution display on the second-generation tablet,” AppleInsider reports. “Apple will reportedly quadruple the number of pixels on the iPad with a 2048×1536 resolution when it launches a new model, expected this spring.”
AppleInsider reports, “In early January, the supplier posted a video detailing parts that were ostensibly for the “iPhone 5.” The video was removed due to a legal request from Apple, but has since been reposted. In actuality, the part was for the soon-to-be-released Verizon CDMA iPhone 4.
