Apple has sent out invitations for the iPad 3 launch on March 7 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. This launch comes almost a year after the launch of the iPad 2.
The invitaion email as shown on WSJ shows a finger over the calendar app that is set to March 7.
It will be interesting to see if the promise of it being ‘Something you really have to see. And touch’ will also include the anticipated quad core processor and high definition (2048×1536 Retina) display, in addition to carrying the wireless fourth generation LTE networks. Apple already has to contend with growing sales of tablets that use Google’s Android software. Its shipments have dropped to 61.5% from 63.3% world wide in the second quarter.
Other rumors include the possibility of a camera with a higher resolution (either 5 MP or 8 MP). I am expecting Siri to be included too. Stay tuned at 10:00 am on Wednesday.
