Latest leak of Apple iPad 3 shows 8MP camera and less tapered edges
Taiwan based Apple Daily has the latest rumors regarding the Apple iPad 3. The site was able to obtain a picture of what it claims is the rear cover of the third-gen Apple tablet. The picture reveals less tapered edges and the camera, which is expected to be an 8MP shooter. That is a big bump up from the .7MP camera on the Apple iPad 2 and matches the camera on the Apple iPhone 4S.

Other specs leaked to Apple Daily include the screen's 2048 x 1536 resolution which is being described as a "Retina Panel". Under the hood is a faster A6 processor. According to the site, the Apple iPad 3 will have LTE connectivity as was surmised in a story last week, and a bigger battery which is necessary for devices supporting LTE.

The site also says that the product has not yet been named and could be either the Apple iPad 3 or Apple iPad 2S. Apple is expected to answer everyone's question with a press event rumored to be held on March 7th. While you are waiting, you can catch up with all of the speculation about the tablet.

Apple likes the use of the letter s,especially when there is two vertical lines going through the s and makes it a dollar sign

No one knew what it was going to be called, we just knew it would be the fifth iPhone and it was rumored there would be an iPhone 5 and/or iPhone 4s, some people thought they would be released together. It's the same here: iPad 3 or iPad 2s = the third iPad.

@SleepingOz You will. On announcement day you will rush to all of the tech sites to see it and look at all of it new specs and features. You will look at it for hours and then rush back to Phone Arena to bash it in the comments section complaining that it doesn't stack up to competitors just by looking on paper. Then, you will continually check your comment to see how many likes you get and anyone who disagrees with you, you will reply with saying dumb people prefer iOS (or something along those lines) and go on to say Android is supreme. Sound about right?

How? I don't get it 'coz he wasn't and is not able to argue on the fact that the ipad is and will just be nothing but a big ipod touch. But I guess you, isheeep, is intelligent enough to prove me wrong. Yes? No?

Well, we go see the Apple fans angry and mad , because the Galaxy Tab 11.6 it's much more powerful than Ipad 3 in hardware terms, because of the cpu+gpu used on the Samsung one and have bigger screen resolution.

Roses are red Facebook is blue According to Apple There is no control for you! Thumbs up are green Thumbs down are red No widgets or live wallpapers That's what makes me mad Sniggly is good gallitoking is bad If you don't have control over the products you buy Your freedom of choice is dead

You don't have any more freedom on android than u do on iOS. U have to jailbreak ios,and root android to really have freedom. U can customize both phones... More so on android with widgets,but to truly make it yours people root their androids. I had to root mine to really make it like I wanted it,and had to jailbreak my 4S. The 4S however works better than my skyrocket. It runs smoother,has much better battery life,doesn't crash,freeze,lag,or get choosy like my skyrocket. The 4S has a pretty,but boring interface... I'll admit that,but apples products simply work better than googles. I love both,and own both,but if I had to sell one I'd sell my skyrocket. And no tablet I've worked with out performs the iPad. It's about looks,and performance... Not just freedom of the ui's look.
