Sources say the company has chosen the first week in March to debut the successor to the iPad 2, and will do so at one of its trademark special events.
I’d suggest it is a reasonably safe bet that we’ll see a new iPad some time early on in March, most likely known as iPad 3.
I would definitely be avoiding buying any expensive accessories for your current iPad if you’re anything like me and likely to buy the iPad 3 near launch date. I wouldn’t mind betting we see a slightly different design / dimension this time around with the likelihood of a new A6 processor, higher resolution display, etc. potentially adding a little thickness to the iPad 3.
Of course this is all pure speculation and we won’t know anything for sure until Tim Cook and his colleagues get up on stage and announce it.
