    Last week AllThingsD said that Apple’s next iPad will be announced at an event scheduled for the first week in April. Now iMore has an exclusive news story, saying that Apple will be launching the iPad 3 on Wednesday, March 7, according to the site’s sources, which it says have been reliable in the past. iMore adds that the new iPad will have a 2048x1536 Retina display, a quad core A6 system-on-a-chip, and it may also have 4G LTE capabilities. This, of course, ties in with most of the recent reports, although generally the jury still seems to be out on whether or not the next iPad will have 4G LTE. Most pundits recently have been agreeing that the iPad 3 will have a quad-core processor, although there have been a couple who have said that it won’t yet be possible. Well, either way, if this story is correct, and I suspect that it probably is, we won’t have long to wait to find out![/FONT]

    i'll buy the iPad3 if it does in fact have a 2048x1536 Retina display, a quad core A6 system-on-a-chip processor. a better camera for pictures and video would be real nice too. my daughter will get my iPad2 and i have a girlfriend who wants to have my daughters iPad1 so it will all work out.

    can't wait to get some official news!

    All that plus the LTE. Got my mind on a 32gig white. No LTE no iPad 3 for me.

    LTE is Long Term Evolution. Think 4G networks.

    Apple is really gaining much but do you think that apple could become a customer oriented rather than of bieng a profit oriented... ohh I could not put the question mark. My new apple bluetooth keyboard for iPad wont work..

    Anyway... my concern here is that.. Apple introduce the iPad 2 3G plus WIFI. but the problem here is there is a 3G just for internet connection so if you will use your SIM from your phone to your iPad2 3G it will rejects all call and there is no SMS capability.

    A good strategy for making a good busioness and windfall profit but the user will suffered much for 2 subscription from a phone company. they needs to have a subscription for iPhone4s and another for iPad2 3G so both would wrok well otherwise only WIFI capability of iPad2 is useful. See news Edited by Moderator - external link removed, please read the forum rules

    Me too I would agree if there could be a call and SMS capability of the Aplle iPad2 3G plus WIFi because I am spending more than a thousand of US Dollars to have this iPad2 3G with WIFI and I could not use if if I want to call.

    If and oinly if the thelephone service provider will allow a 2 SIM party that would allow the same number of the 2 micro SIM for Iphone and iPad2 3G then it could be great but they dont allow a party line SIM

    Wait, is the iPad 3 being launched or announced on March 7? Because a bunch of sources are conflicting between the two.

    Can't wait to have it my hands, the fact that apple doesn't say anything makes ppl even more crazy. All these rumors are killing me, and with apple you never know. :)

    I just purchased a 64gb wifi. I have an iPhone 4 if i take the iPad out with me I just pair it with the iPhone and it just as good as my sisters 3G one. 3G ones are a waste I you have a iPhone with a large sat allowance.

    Don't know about you but just having GPS is worth the $120 difference between Wifi only and 3G models. The iPads GPS is remarkably accurate. To give a comparison, my first generation iPad had an accuracy of about 16 feet. My top of the line Garmin stand along GPS unit($500) had an accuracy of 10 feet.

    I don't get what all the fuss is about! I only have a 1 at the moment, but it does everything I need. I don't care that I haven't got a camera on my iPad, I have a really good digital camera that fits in my pocket and all my music is on my iPod. And if i want to call or Skype my friends i use my mobile. My only problem is lack of space because I only have a 16gb and it isn't enough. So when my birthday comes in August I will upgrade to the most recent model, whatever it happens to be, and I will make sure I have the 64 so I can pack it with films and games.
