iMore: iPad 3 Keynote On March 7
Citing "sources who have been reliable in the past", Rene Ritchie at iMore claims that Apple will announce its next-generation iPad at a media event on Wednesday, March 7.
According to sources who have been reliable in the past, Apple currently plans to hold their iPad 3 announcement on Wednesday, March 7, 2012. Along with the 2048×1536 Retina display, the iPad 3 will feature a quad-core Apple 6 system-on-a-chip, and possibly 4G LTE networking.
Whilst we have refrained from reporting every single iPad 3 rumor to date, Ritchie's report seems to make sense for a couple of reasons. First, well-connected John Paczkowski at All Things D is claiming that Apple will be holding an iPad 3 event in the first week of March. The Loop's Jim Dalrymple has chimed in confirming AllThingsD's report with a "Yep". iMore, previously known as TiPB, doesn't cover rumors much, but when they did last year, they were only off by a week, and correctly pinpointed the nature of the iPhone 4S (which became available for pre-order on October 7th, went on sale a week later).
The iPad 3 was previously rumored to be feature a high-res Retina Display, faster "A6" processor, and LTE connectivity. Back in August, The Wall Street Journal wrote the iPad 3 would launch in "early 2012" with a high-resolution display.
