A handful of outlets are citing three anonymous – but normally trustworthy – sources, and they’re saying that Apple plans to start flogging the iPad 3 this March.

Apple’s (sometimes suicidal) Asian manufacturing partners are already ramping up production if the rumours are to be believed. Of course, Apple are making no comment.

So what can we expect? Well, the sources are noting that Apple hope to make the new iPad compatible with a wireless standard known (LTE). More interestingly, the new tablet will host a high-definition screen that will be higher spec than most HDTVs. One source reckons that the image is so clear that it will “make images look like printed material.”

Basically, it seems that the new iPad will offer a lot more in comparison to the iPad2, than the iPad2 did to the first release.

Over on the Mobot side of the office, Lewis has been throwing together all the iPad 3 rumours here.

    Presumably so long as that printed material is shiny and has lots of reflections.

    ‘To everyone who just themselves an iPad2′ I assume you meant to add in the word ‘bought’ after someone points out the mistake…

    Rich,

    Stop being so picky, this isn’t The Times you know.

    Mof – Didn’t you mean rumoured rather than rumored ?

    I agree with rich, if these guys want to be taken seriously the least they could do is check over there work. It reads like the workings of a 4 year old.

    Doesn’t matter what technology they have coming in the Ipad 3 – the same silly fuckers will go out and spunk their student grants / dole money / parents money on a locked down steaming pile of shite that YOU KNOW is going to be outdated in 2 weeks.

    Lame-ass-fuck-wits

    @Sicknote,

    At least with the iThings you’ll know you’ll have roughly 12 months with the latest device. Compare this to Android where a lot of devices are outdated on release with no guaranteed updates…

    Agreed that the fuckwits will buy it regardless though, which I think was your main point.

    Surely it should be the Ipad 2S ?
