It’s been almost 2 years since the release of the iPad 2 and availability has just gotten to the point where anybody could buy one anytime they wanted, but it seems like Apple is about to throw another iPad down our way to screw things up all over again.

According to an article by Digitimes, the iPad 3 is about to go into production in January and will be available within the next 3-4 months. OEM producers of iPads are expecting to reduce production of iPad 2’s to 4-5 million units in Q1 2012 from the current 14-15 million and replace them with production of iPad 3’s which are expected to reach 9.5-9.8 million in Q1 2012.

So who’s planning to wait in line all night just to drop $500 on one of these?
