    The story coming out is that the iPad 3 may be brought out in September to put it on track with the iPods. It would have several advantages, and could put a big hurt on the Android 3.0 based tablets. I suspect that Apple may be anxious to get the higher resolution screen out and could not do it on the iPad 2, so they saw the advantages of bringing out the iPad 3 six months early. Of course, this is still rumor, but it raises some interesting points and questions of what else would be added.

    So apple is going to release an iPad this summer which is dead in the water so that they can release the real competition to android 8 months after the android tablets start shipping??? And they do this why? It's not like it will make them more money? They have a successful business of spacing out releases to once a year. This will not happen.

    I wouldn't say it won't happen. You should check out the article on Mac Rumors. It's an interesting theory..

    I think the big issue is with people not wanting to get an iPad for Christmas, knowing that a new model would be coming out in March or April.

    Then wouldn't they just delay the iPad 2??? Why would they produce millions of them when in six months its completely obsolete and no one wants it.

    There are still people that want an iPad. This way, they get upgrades that will make them happy, and may attract some who want to upgrade. No matter when they do an upgrade, it will irritate some customers and please others.

    I bought my iPad in January knowing full well the iPad 2 was supposed to be out in the spring. It really didn't matter to me since I had heard the iPad 3 would be out before end of 2011. Had some discussion with someone from the Apple store in Chicago about this going on. The thought was Apple might not release iPad 2 as planned.

    Guess this will be a wait and see thing. I'll continue to enjoy my iPad in the meantime.

    Guess there is not too much tempting stuff for me right now to consider replacing my current iPad. I love my iPod 4 display, so I'll wait as long as it takes until they sell an iPad with retina...

    If you're always going to wait for the next, better model to come out...well you'll be waiting a very very long time.

    I'm not waiting for the next better one. I'm waiting for retina. Until then, my iPad 1 just does what I need it for. :)

    iPad 2 is seen as an incremental update, whereas the speculation is that the iPad 3 would be an alternative higher quality model targeted at power users.
    Rumour suggests the anticipated retina quality screen at double the resolution.

    Makes sense to offer more than one model and would be a neat counter to all those emerging iPad killers.....

    This will be interesting. I had decided I wouldn't upgrade until 3 but even then it may not offer enough to warrant an upgrade. I have lots of room, things work well, actually can't think of a major reason to upgrade but expect they will offer something I didn't realize I needed at some point LOL. I haven't seen the retina display but am sure I'd liie it but not sure I would consider an upgrade for that. I really don't want a camera so wonder whqt else they might offer to tempt me.

    We don't even have official word on the iPad 2 and people are already speculating about the iPad 3?

    What's the point? It's like treading water, you are doing all this work, but you aren't getting anywhere. Let's at least wait until see what the iPad 2 is going to have before we worry what the next one might have.

    I don't need the camera either. But I recently treated myself to an iPod 4 (my iPad to go) with the higher resolution. And actually, I was blown away by its clarity over the iPad. So yes, retina would be a sure thing for me.
    Other than that, it's like you say. Not so much else that could tempt me.

    Do not forget that the iPhone 5 will be released this summer and there may be some iOS changes to go with it. There is enough market that I doubt there will be any lack of sales for Apple to worry about. It is to Apple's credit that they are not willing to sit on their laurels.

    I'm calling major BS here. For starters this goes completely against apples business model...and secondly it makes no sense! The first gen iPad is still in early adaption phases....iPad 2 is too soon...to step it up in Sept would be a shot in the foot since not too many people are going to upgrade to the iPad 2 it will be mostly new users and none of them will want a new one 6 months later!

    The current model works and the release schedule will make sense....iPad Spring, iPhone Summer, iPod Fall.
