    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)
