iPad 3

Apple’s not holding an event in February — strange, unusual or otherwise. But it is holding one in March — to launch its next iPad.
Sources say the company has chosen the first week in March to debut the successor to the iPad 2, and will do so at one of its trademark special events. The event will be held in San Francisco, presumably at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Apple’s preferred location for big announcements like these.
No word yet on a street date for the iPad 3 (assuming that’s what it’s called), though my guess is retail availability will follow roughly the same schedule as that of the iPad 2: Available for purchase a week or so after the event.
As for the next-generation iPad itself, sources say it will be pretty much what we’ve been led to expect by the innumerable reports leading up to its release: A device similar in form factor to the iPad 2, but running a much faster chip, sporting an improved graphics processing unit, and featuring a 2048×1536 Retina Display — or something close to it.
If 2011 was the year of the iPad 2, will 2012 be the year of the iPad 3? Said a source familiar with the device: “What do you think?”
An Apple spokeswoman declined comment on the timing of the event, saying the company does not comment on rumors and speculation.


One year after Apple unveiled the iPad 2, the company is set to announce the iPad 3 in the first week of March, sources tell GETbyU.

The event will likely be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the arts in San Francisco, which traditionally houses Apple’s large announcements. The timing makes sense for Apple since it launched the iPad 2 in early March last year.

There’s no word yet on when the iPad 3 will actually be available (or if it will even be called that), but we can expect it within a week or two after the announcement.

At this point, we expect the iPad 3 to offer a faster processor, faster graphics, and a higher resolution screen. Apple will likely include its new A6 chip in the iPad 3, which was initially expected to be a quad-core chip, though recent rumors now allege it to be a faster dual-core processor.
