    Information by an Apple Store source who has been reliable in the past has indicated that preparations are being made for a big Apple Store event which will culminate on Friday, March 16th. Naturally, this points to an iPad 3 launch on the Friday just nine days after tomorrow’s announcement. Apple Store in London at the world famous Harrod’s will open on that date as well as a new Store in Houston, Texas.

    But does it talk about anything in specific about iPad3 no right ? It is what experts and people are making out of it, what it could be ! Did Apple say it is about iPad 3 ? No right ?

    It is almost a certainty that the iPad 3 will be released tomorrow. Less certain that they will be releasing the new AppleTV at the same time. There is a rumored Apple event next week. It is also pretty certain that the iPad will be in stores on the 16th. They would not put them in stores on the 9th due to the inability to get on-line orders in. It is almost certain that the on line ordering is going to be chaotic, and that after the first few days, people will be put on backorder. Since they will probably still be making iPad 2s for a long time, and the apparent inability to kick out the retina screens at the pace of the original screens, it amy be a long time befor the catch up to demand.
