    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.
