    All the rumor about a iPad 3 have stopped now that all the new androids have been released. I think apple was worried due to the LTE4 but as it turned out the androids could not match the ipad2 so there is no need to release the ipad3 this year.

    They never were going to release the Ipad 3 this year.;) In the Spring of next year ~ Apple releases new lines a year apart.

    I won't be buying the 3 anyway, so it doesn't affect me any :) I just bought my 2. But every time my brother drags me into the nearest Verizon store I think that Xoom gets uglier and uglier! :p

    It seemed like the only reason the rumor got any clout was because analysts suspected Apple would do a late fall launch in order to compete with the latest android tablets to compete for the holiday season sales. Jobs made it very clear in his presentation back in March that 2011 was going to be the year of the iPad 2.

    Apple fears no one. The ipad 3 rumor was worth less than the paper it was written on.
    They paid cash in advance back in the spring for over half of the screen parts to be manufactured for the rest of the year , causing everyone else to lower their predictions , some by over 50%,for sales in quarters 3 and 4.

    The latest is that the iPad 2012 will be lighter, faster, and have a longer battery life. There is also speculation that the iPad 2 will be kept in the lineup at a lower price to counter any price cutting by other tablets.

    That's nice to hear that the ipad2 has legs. I still contend that if the last four or five android tablets "were" as good or better than the iPad 2 AND sales were swinging towards the Xoom or whatever. If that were the case right now I believe apple would be releasing the iPad 3. Or there would be on fire sales just like the HPs. So my initial thought that the Xoom delayed the iPad 3 release is still valid. If android tablet were anywhere near the ipad2 it would pressure apple to not only release the ipad3 but it would have even more features.

    But since it's not the case it's not the case.
