iPad 3 Announcement First Week of March 2012
There has been much discussion online about the new iPad 3 due out this year. Of those rumors, one of them has been when we were going to hear official word from Apple in regards to an announcement and product showing. AllThingsD is now reporting that Apple will in fact be announcing the iPad 3 to the world in the first week of March 2012. After that announcement, the iPad 3 should be available in North America somewhere in the second and third weeks on March for purchase.
“Apple’s not holding an event in February. 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.”
The iPad 3 is expected to have Retina HD display with 2048 x 1536 resolution, an upgraded rear camera, iOS 5.1, a larger battery for improved battery life and a quad-core A6 processor. Other improvements are reported to include 4G LTE models of the iPad 3 all fitting within the same casing as the iPad 2. Hopefully this may mean that all of the extra keyboards and cases you bought for your iPad 2 will work with the iPad 3.
