    AppleInsider reports today that according to Japanese blog Macotakara, Apple is planning to hold a special event in early February to announce not just the iPad 3, but also iOS 5.1. This would fit in very nicely with the most recent report from Bloomberg that stated that Apple would be launching the iPad 3 in March. Macotakara says that it obtained this information from both an Asian supplier and a US source. AppleInsider notes that last year the iPad 2 was announced at a media even on March 2, and launched nine days later on March 11, but if today’s story is true it would seem that this year Apple prefers to have a longer lead in after the initial announcement before the iPad 3 goes on sale. This could be because of the delay in production caused by the earlier-than-usual Chinese New Year celebrations, which run from Jan 23 through to Jan 28, and during which time the factories will be shut down.

    Thanks for answering my question. I was just thinking when 5.1 will roll out.

    Knowing apple, unless its an official apple storage card that only fits on mac products, costs 80+ dollars and the slot to put it in is weird so you cant use any other card, it wont happen anytime soon. XD

    Hopefully! And hopefully they will introduce the iPad 2 at a lower price as well. I just recently read that tablet sales are projected to increase by 5 times till 2015 and Apple better offers something for those of us who are on a budget (like I am)

    I am new to the Apple world. It is awsome, with sleek devices and smooth os, apps, etc.

    BUT!! We have to do things their way or else!

    As I'm learning with iPad2, iTunes is the only way to acquire and store music. (I have to buy it all over again.) So, the concept of inserting an SD card with already owned media and using on the iPad is out of character. Maybe the new guy will lighten up and allow a little freedom.

    Why do you need to buy your music again? I ripped all my CD's into iTunes and load whatever I want onto my iPad.

    Same here! Most of my music is from my CD collection. No need to buy again! Looking forward to iPad 3. I will wait a few months before I make a move on it!

    Amen. Timing couldn't be better if the release happens to be in March or so. I have a bit of money coming my way around that time or just before. I plan on giving this iPad 2 64GB+3G to my Mom, as she has no broadband in her area but there is an AT&T 3G tower on the hill behind her house ad she doesn't want anything to do with Dad's ancient PC that's on dial-up.
