    More likely March as Apple is usually conservative in it's release cycles.
    That said it's Steve's birthday in Feb and they just might want to commemorate it.

    There is a reliable source saying the iPad 3 will be out in February. It should be noted the iPad originally came out in April, the iPad 2 in March. With the competition heating up, they can make a statement by bringing out a great upgrade sooner.

    What does this reliable source talk about the specifications of the iPad-3. Especially the screen size ? Are they gonna keep the same screen size 9.7 inch ? or are they likely to reduce the screen size and make it smaller?

    Screen size will not be changing, but Apple does have a conflict with their desire to make it thinner and the needs of a high res screen. Most likely, it will be very slightly thicker than the iPad 2, but much thinner than iPad original. Weight should be similar, but nobody is sure. I think there is no doubt that Siri will be available, but that will mean a big improvement on the microphone. There should also be a much improved rear camera.

    And what about the screen quality and Screen Resolution ? I was just reading that Sharp has come up with some new tehcnology called the IGZO technology which Apple is most likely going to use in iPad-3, where in they dont use LED IPS Displays atall. But this IGZO thing can have a higher PPI for a higher resolution. In My opinion if they are gonna completely get away with the LED LIGHT Backlit Display it would be a utter foolishness. If they can have the IGZO technology along with the current LED Light Display that would be just perfect. I do think that No, mostly they will not completely getway with the LED lit Display beacuse otherwise how will you illuminate the screen, it would look a very dull, not bright, screen which I dont think sounds practical so...Maybe instead of the Dual LED Lamps that they wanted to have in the iPad-3 instead of that they may still want to keep atleast a LED lit display !

    I think it's very safe to assume that Apple will not announce or release the iPad 3 within the thirty day return window after December 25. Apple can be criticized for many things. Being stupid about making money is not one of those things.

    If it were not for rumors, there would be little thrill on many forums. Samsung shows advertising for a future product that has a flexible screen that you can see through and use as a tablet. Extremely interesting, but too many questions and I doubt if it will be ready for a long time. And while I like the concept of a see-through screen, do people want their usage viewable to the world.

    I think April Fools Day is an appropriate estimate.

    People who already have/own a iPad will always feel with Apple coming out with upgraded versions, it is making a fool of the money that they have invested in the older devices. So can expect such a reaction lol :)

    It is my understanding that screen size needs to be scalable so all the existing apps work. If you start changing to say a 7 inch screen the whole infrastructure has to be changed. That's not going to happen. SJ said 7" is too small ... I agree personally. A lot of careful work when into chosing the 9.7 screen size. I still couldn't comfortably put a Kindle Fire in my pocket. Wouldn't want one anyway ... nor a Nook, nor any of the other brands that aren't selling well.
