Lately, we have talked a lot about the iPhone 5 so it is a relief to finally get a rumor about the iPad 3, which according to the Taiwan Economic News Today, Apple has contracted two different companies to produce the batteries that will eventually end up in Apple next iPad.

According to the rumor the iPad 3 will be a lot thinner and lighter thanks to the new battery which will be produced by Simplo Technology Co alongside Dynapack International Corp, which could mean a new retina display alongside the new thinner design.

With the iPhone 5 announcement expected to come very soon, rumored to be launched next month, leaving the iPad 3 in the dark, which is rumored to stay there until the start of next year, at the moment though the iPad 3 is still a little foggy with no verified leads just yet.

What do you think? What do you think the new iPad 3 will include? When do you think it will be released?
