    Default AllThingsD: iPad 3 Event Set for First Week of March


    The granddaddy of all inside Apple sources - AllThingsD - is reporting that the third generation iPad will be introduced the first week of March at an Apple media event in San Francisco at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

    "No word yet on a street date for the iPad 3 (assuming thatís what itís called)," says John Paczkowski, "though my guess is retail availability will follow roughly the same schedule as that of the iPad 2: Available for purchase a week or so after the event."

    The source confirming the early March launch says that if 2011 was the year of the iPad 2, 2012 will clearly be the year of the iPad 3.

    With the device's design and production now confirmed and in process, what can we confident predict from the third-generation device? According to Paczkowski, the rumor mill probably got it right. Look for the iPad 3 to be a device "similar in form factor to the iPad 2," but one that runs a significantly faster chip, delivers an improved graphics processing unit, and features the long-awaited 2048◊1536 Retina Display.

    Apple, as you might expect, won't confirm or deny the latest prediction of an early March media event, but AllThingsD says it's on like Donkey Kong.

    Looking forward to what updated features they have. But I just don't see the point in upgrading from my iPad 2 with just the features that are currently rumored to be coming. Hope there's something 'amazing' to change my mind.

    And really hope they don't call it an iPad 2S.

    I might get it depending on what used iPad 2's are going for since I would be selling my existing iPad 2.

    Made the mistake of buying a 16gb iPad 2. And I really need at the very least 32gigs. So. Will. Buy. !!!

    Ok now that I have silenced my conscience, time to save up the cash !!!

    The one feature to look for the most I'd guess is the retina display. That alone would kill any other tablet in the market in my opinion, just like any higher resolution device, once you play with it you have a hard time going back to a lower resolution device and considering how big the app store is...if you have an iPad 2 I see no reason not to upgrade. Having in mind you are enjoying your iPad experience anyway. Looking at a retina display should be a much more compelling experience. Obviously it should also come with a better processor and graphics unit. That does it for me.

    Honestly, if the iPad 3 contains all the new features we're expecting it to have, Apple wouldn't even need to release a new one next year. It would dominate well into 2013. Might even be a good strategy for them.

    I also think they should have did what they did with the iPods and just kept the name 'iPad' for all the models and went with different generations instead. It makes it even more iconic. Even 'iPad HD' is a better bet than iPad 3, in my opinion.

    Hope it happens before March 11th (the day my iPad 2 was bought) so I can return my iPad 2 under the 1-year warranty and have enough cash to pick up an iPad 3 for no extra cash

    We'll see. I'm half-way holding my breath
    :-P
    I always thought the term "early adopter" (regarding tech) was a bit snooty. So, I'll go ahead and call myself an early adopter, cuz I'm feeling a bit snooty.
