After months of anticipation, Apple has announced the third generation of the iPad. Prices are (all USD) $499/$599/$699 for Wi-Fi-only models in 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. Models with LTE 4G cost $629/$729/$829 respectively for the same capacities.
Forget Super Tuesday. For technology enthusiasts, it’s all about what happens on Wednesday in Cupertino, Calif., where Apple is expected to unveil the next generation of its iPad.
The company is headed into its Wednesday media event with plenty of consumer anticipation for its next tablet computer, despite the fact that Apple hasn’t even confirmed that it is introducing a new iPad. The company’s media invitation said only: “We have something you really have to see. And touch.”
Apple's special media event—one that many believe to be for the next-generation iPad—is now mere days away. By this time next week, we'll know once and for all how many of those pesky pre-event rumors were true and which ones were made up by "optimistic" sources.
Because there are so many elements to consider for the as-yet-unannounced iPad, which is colloquially being referred to as the "iPad 3," we thought we'd round them up in one spot to talk about what seems most plausible.
Apple finally released an official invitation to the press regarding the much-anticipated launch of their newest iPad dubbed as iPad 3 on March 7.
While comparison photos of the iPad 2 rear shell and a claimed iPad 3 rear shell have shown slightly increased thickness for the forthcoming model and reports have suggested that the difference is roughly 1 mm, no measurements had surfaced to quantify the exact difference in thickness between the two devices.
Apple.pro now points to a new photo showing both shells being measured with a digital caliper. According to the photo, the iPad 2 rear shell measures in at 8.69 mm thick while the iPad 3 part comes in at 9.50 mm, a difference of 0.81 mm.
