    Apple will announce the launch of the iPad 3 on March 7, and the new tablet computer is expected to support 4G LTE high-speed mobile services, according to reports.

    The iMore website reports sources which have "proved reliable in the past" as confirming the date of the official announcement of the third iteration of the iPad at Apple's Cupertino base in California.

    This fits with previous reports that the announcement will occur in the first full week of March, and then the product will go on sale, most likely in the US, UK and other selected countries, two weeks later.

    Yes. So the existing apps scale correctly.

    there is always "early shortage" of apple products, whatever the given reason. I reckon half of it is to drum up publicity.

    Still on the fence as to whether to bother upgrading or not.

    TBH rather than the hi-res screen, what would sell it to me is if it was significantly lighter.

    I've read that potentially it could be heavier and thicker, to accommodate the bigger battery.

    Hmm... the last one wasn't exactly light. I could live with thicker, but heavier isn't ideal.

    i also suppose that using the same smartcover on the new ipad will be impossible knowing them.

    they'll slightly adjust the magnet positions or something so it doesnt fit, and claim its much better to use that way...

    Presume if it's 4G/LTE we're getting a different model over in Yurp given the lack of bandwidth?

    Yeah a few reports say its thicker a little for a bigger battery and issues the ipad 2 had with the tight fit and light bleed.

    Ugh.
    If it is 9mm thick ... a mere 0.2mm more than the current iPad ... then no worries however, any more than 9mm or closer to the original iPad, I'd be quite disappointed.

    I shall be at the cinema at ten to six tomorrow evening so, I will miss all the chat on here!

    I just hope it'll cost the same as they are now; starting from 399.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Your maths are off by at least 5 factors of worthless fanboyism.



    1cm thick then.

    Bet you a sizeable sum they don't mention the extra thickness as a negative at any point though.

    As long as they don't put the wobbly back back on. The first iPAd is clearly designed by a moran. I know they brag about not using "personas" at Cupernico but surely they test their own products before they start mass producing them.

    there's never a live stream

    i dont want it to be very good, so that i am not tempted to buy it.

    when you say apple tv do you mean the little box or an actual apple tv? i want an apple tv (for no apparent reason), been holding off on it until an upgrade.
