Rumor alert: iPad 3 may be announced in February, to ship in March
Here is a spicy rumor to start your day with: the Apple iPad 3 is expected to be announced in February, according to Japanese blog Macotakara. Supposedly, Apple has an event scheduled for early next month, at which both the next-gen iPad and iOS 5.1 will be showed off. How do they know? Well, the folks at the aforementioned blog claim that sources in both Asia and the U.S. have told them exactly that. They also state that the iPad 3, and its name is just a guess at this time, will be available for purchase in early March.

Now, this isn't the first time when Macotakara treats us to an Apple-related rumor. In fact, just days ago, they suggested that the first iPad 3 batches will be ready for shipping in early March. However, their previous predictions have been quite inaccurate, although they managed to nail a number of iPhone 4S specs back in May. Nevertheless, as the case is with all rumors, it would be wise to take this one with a dose of disbelief for now.

What is rumored about the next iPad iteration is that the device will come with a display of resolution higher than that of its predecessor. Seeing a quad-core A6 processor ticking under its hood is not out of the question either. Of course, whether any of these improvements will be in tow or not will become apparent once the iPad 3 gets officially announced.

We all know that the faces of the iPad series look alike, so Phone Arena, you can use the picture of the iPad 2 for the iPad 3's database.

So far Rumors iPad 3
- Quad Core A6 Processor
- 4G LTE
- Higher Resolution
- 32/64/128GB version
- Improved iOS 5.1
- More Slim / More Thick
- Little Design Change
Some of them seems realistic.

How many times are we going to hear this useless rumour and how many times are we going to hear 'it changes everything again' once it launches?!

I doubt the iPad 3 will have quadcore or LTE.. but it might have a little change design wise.. probably more memory up to 128GB.. will definitely have HD screen and better GPU..
