Apple sources are saying that the iPad3 is expected to be the company’s first major release of 2012, and its first shipment could go over 4 million units.

According to 9to5Mac, reports say Apple wants to launch the iPad 3 on the anniversary of Steve Jobs’ birthday, Feb. 24. And Asian contract manufacturers are asking employees to work overtime during the Lunar New Year holiday to meet the deadline.

Bloomberg’s sources say the iPad 3 will go on sale in March, and will have a high-definition screen, a quicker processor and be compatible with long-term evolution. According to etnews.com, Samsung Electronics and LG Display will be providing display panels for the iPad 3, because Sharp couldn’t meet its initial supply. Reports said iPad 3 production began at the beginning of January, with some Chinese factories operating 24 hours.
