iOS 5 code references support 'J2' model iPad 3

Tablet may be set for early 2012 release

Code strings in iOS 5 support the existence of the "J2" model iPad 3 claimed by Digitimes, according to 9to5Mac. The device is listed alongside familiar codenames for other Apple devices such as the iPhone 4. Apple has allegedly been considering two different designs as a successor to the iPad 2, the J2 being a more advanced device than the J1, also using different dimensions. The iOS 5 code also groups the J2 alongside other 3G-capable hardware.

The J2 is expected to have a extremely high-resolution 2048x1536 display, and by extension twin LED light bars. Few other details have emerged about its design, but parts for an iPad 3 are already believed to be in production. The likely goal is having enough units for a launch in March or April.

Also mentioned in the iOS 5 code is an unknown piece of hardware listed as the T39. As it sits alongside the J2, it is also liable to connect to 3G networks.

    Does this terminology and code organization imply that the iPad 3 will be a 3G, but NOT be a 4G/LTE device?
