More Evidence Apple Could Introduce the iPadHD Not the iPad 3
Another rumor has surfaced claiming Apple will step away from the numerical naming convention with the next iPad and introduce the iPad HD this Wednesday.
CNET cites a source who has previously provided “reliable information” about unreleased Apple products. The source claims Apple will not use the much-anticipated “iPad 3” namesake and name the latest release the “iPad HD.”
VentureBeat published a similar report claiming Apple will veer away from the traditional naming scheme in an effort to emphasize the new high-resolution “Retina Display.” The “iPad HD” rumors compliment the pictures of an “A5X” processor that surfaced last week. The pictures of the non-A6 processor have fueled speculation about Apple introducing an incremental upgrade instead of a true successor.
Accessory lists leaked from Belkin and Griffin indicate the manufacturers are using the iPad HD name instead of iPad 3 as well. The HD naming convention could be Apple’s intermediate update name for future iPad releases much like the “S” in recent iPhone models like the 3GS and 4S.
Wednesday’s iPad can’t come soon enough. Then instead of rampant speculation filling the blogosphere, groans of Apple not releasing a true iPad update will fill the blogosphere.

Correct if I'm wrong, but wasn't this the very same rumor spread around before the iPhone 4 came out? The whole "wanting to showcase the retina display" by adding HD to the name? Just feels like deja-vu to me.

Oh noes! Regardless, my original iPad is feeling rather outdated. It is going to be a great gift to my girlfriend, and time for me to upgrade.

So its the iPad 2S.
I know Apple are stupid and this just proves it again.
Its the 3rd generation of iPad but they cant count. They don't know how to go from 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Look at the iPhone. It went from iPhone to iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S then the next one will be iPhone 5. I would believe that will be the 6th iPhone model and where is iPhone 2?

well, I don't really care about the name, wither it's iPad3 or iPadHD.
As long as there's a good upgrade in the hardware and upcoming softwares, I'm happy with whatever they call it.

HD would be pretty much the opposite of the S scheme. S stands for speed (as was announced at the 3GS unveiling), while the HD emphasizes a better screen.
