The iPad 3 rumors have died down recently, and now more information has been revealed on the third generation Apple iPad, which points to a new slimmer design for the iPad 3 over the existing iPad 2.
The Pad 2 is already slimmer and lighter than the original iPad, and now according to a recent report the iPad 3 will come with a new thinner and lighter battery module that would allow Apple to produce a thinner iPad 3.
The new battery module is reported to cost around 20 to 30 percent more than the existing iPad battery to manufacture, and will also have a higher capacity than the existing iPad battery.
Considering we have heard that the iPad 3 will feature a higher resolution display than the first and second generation iPads, it would obviously require a more powerful battery to power it.
Apple has now released its third generation iPad, have a look at our iPad 3 vs iPad 2 guide for more information on the differences between the two tablets.
