Yep. BUT the original plan was indeed to release the “Retina” iPad this fall. It was simply delayed until early next year due to component shortages and a manufacturing hiccup, I hear.
As John Gruber notes, Apple releases things when they’re ready to go, not around some arbitrary timetable. The Retina iPad was originally going to be ready to go this fall. Now it’s not. So they’ll release it when it is.
