MIC Gadget has gotten a hold of the outer shell of the iPad 3, or so they say. The new iPad 3 looks very familiar and if I didn’t know better I would say that I was looking at the iPad 2.
There had been rumors that the iPad 3 might not have a home button on the front but utilize the gestures in iOS 5 only. Well, it seemed unlikely and it appears to be debunked.
MIC Gadget has also confirmed that the sizes will remain the same in the iPad 3 just like the previous being 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. It is also important to note that the iPad 3 will likely not have a 4G LTE chipset installed which would drive up the cost of the iPad. Apple will not create a 4G LTE product into a small market which LTE currently has especially on AT&T.
The iPad 3 will be slightly thicker than the iPad 2 but it features more tapered edges that give it a thinner feel for the user. The new iPad 3 will likely have a faster processor, better display, and also sport Siri.
Rumors also indicate that Apple may reveal the upcoming Apple TV set that has been rumored for a very long time. More to be revealed on March 7th, for now check out the video inside.read more

Looks like Apple will be announcing the new Apple iPad 3 on March 7th in the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco. The iPad 3 has been rumored to include the upgraded camera which we all felt should have launched in the iPad 2. Apple has not revealed any information about the iPad 3 except for the announcement.
Other rumors this year include a more expensive iPad 3 with a smaller form factor and higher resolution than the current iPad. These rumors are quite possible but we usually don’t see Apple move away from their designs. However this is the year for the iPhone 5 which is slated to be a radical new design in which the iPad 3 could follow through with.
Apple could also plan to include 4G LTE access in the iPad 3 and possibly the iPhone 5 which will release later in the year. Of’course these are all rumors but are not too wild that they could just happen. Well, stay tuned on the 7th for more information on what is to come.read more
