The Most Likely Of The iPad 3 Rumors: What Will Be New About the Upcoming iPad 3

Erick R Williams (2012)

Rumors are rampant about the much-anticipated iPad - rumored to be released in early March.  I've done a bit research online and here are the most salient rumors (from reasonably good sources).

1.    8MP (1080p) camera sensor possibly the same as the one currently in the iPhone 4S

2.   The ‘iPad 3’ may also have a thicker casing.

3.   There may be a quad-core processor chip  ( "A5X" label on the main chip as seen in a photo believed to be the logic board of the iPad 3).  Other rumors suggest that the processor will be a modified and speedier dual core.

4.   The iPad 3 will have the Retina Display (as in the most recent iPods) with 2048×1536 resolution.

5.   A bigger battery.

6.   LTE capability though many industry writers see this as pretty iffy.

7.  The iPad 3 is a precursor to a smaller 7-inch iPad.

8.  The iPad 3 will have tapered edge.

These are the rumors that I could find that came from good sources, had some sort of rationale that made sense, and showed up at several sources.  

Here is a photo that purports to be the case of the iPad 3 sitting just under an iPad 2 case.

Here is photo that many believe is the processor that will be used by the iPad 3

So they rumor the "ipad 3" to come out in early march and I'm guessing they'll have another one ("ipad 4" or "ipad 3S")releasing in October? (for the Christmas season).

The rumors about an iPad 4 or 5 are of such a poor quality that I didn't remark about them.

nimrodboy3 now there's the rumor that there will be no home button..the invite sent out today said "We have something you really need to see. And touch." The photo shows no sign of a home-button, however it could just be that the camera can't see it in sight, or it's covered by the hand that's pointing. you can check out the pick here

That's the trend. Windows 8 doesn't have the Windows button, Android is dropping the equivalent, and it sounds like Apple is doing the same. Sometimes I think it is true that software is continually improved until they break it :)
