iPad 3 units are going into production

Had your fill of the iPhone 4S? Time to set your sights on its bigger sibling…

Rumours that Apple's iPad 3 is in production are already circulating the interwebs just days after the iPhone 4S hit the shelves.

Allthingsd has reported that an analyst believes that the third generation Apple slate is heading in to production, with supply chain data suggesting that between 600,000 and 1 million iPad 3 units will be churned out in the fourth quarter of 2011.

If true, it would seem that Apple is ramping up production for the iPad 3's big reveal sometime next year, possibly once again in March.

We've already had a smattering of iPad 3 rumours earlier this year and recent whisperings of an iPad Mini have shown that the wheels of speculation are well and truly rolling.
