The Next iPad Will Be Unveiled The First Week Of March 2012!
1 of 7
After months and months of silly "iPad 3" speculation and guesswork, several respected news sources are reporting that the iPad 3 will be unveiled the first week of March 2012.
First to report the news was John Paczkowski of AllThingsD, who you might remember was the first journalist to correctly report (from anonymous sources) that the newest iPhone would be unveiled in October 2011
AND, as though that wasn't enough, he was also first to report
that October 4th was the date that Tim Cook would unveil the iPhone 4S. He has a good track record, in other words, and if his sources say that the iPad 3 will be unveiled in early March, then the iPad 3 is probably going to be unveiled in early March.
After the Paczkowski prediction came some confirmation from a bunch of well-sourced publications, including The New York Times
, The Loop
, and The Next Web
, with The Next Web claiming that Apple was currently in "crunch mode" to get the thing ready by the first week in March. (Worth noting: The Times
isn't quite sure that the next iPad will be called the iPad 3. Perhaps -- and this is just conjecture -- it will be called the "Apple TabletTron 6000.")
The next iPad's official presentation date is just about nailed down. So what is the iPad 3 (or TabletTron 6000) going to look like? Let's take a walk down speculation lane.
