Rumors said Apple would announce the iPad 3 on March 7th – and now it’s been confirmed. Apple just sent out an invitation to the press (see photo above), which clearly indicates that it has something to do with iPad’s.
The press event will take place in Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, March 7th at 10:00 PST (19:00 CET).
As for the iPad shown on the photo above, MacRumors apparently got a hold of the screen in the new iPad 3 a short while ago. They examined it and conduced that the pixel size was 4 times smaller on this new display compared to iPad 2, meaning iPad 3 will likely have a 4x higher resolution. Judging by the photo above, where you can see how crisp the text is, “Calendar”, I’d say it seems very likely the new iPad 3 has a pretty sweet resolution!
Gizmodo also chimes in with an analysis of the iPad 3 invitation photo, they claim the iPad is shown in portrait mode on the photo, and since we can’t see a Home button on the photo, the Home button must be gone from the new iPad 3 – or moved elsewhere.

I just can’t wait for it! I’m so excited, maybe the new iPad will change the tablet-world! Apple always comes out with some really evolutionary researches and high.tech features!
One of my friends on Facebook mentioned sothing about the launch of The Ipad 3 but didn’t realise it would be so soon this is fantastic news. 4x higher resolution that would be insane if true also is the ipad picture side on as where is the Home button? Thanks for the read.
Sounds good … Can’t wait to purchase the new pad
I am looking forward to March 7th. Some of the rumors make the iPad 3 look very cool.
I hope that iPad3 has better functions than 2. Well I don’t know about you guys but I’m not well pleased with iPad2.
I also believe that the button will go away. There are rumors that this would be iPad 2S as well to keep the products in line with iPhone 4s. Anyway, we will wait and see. Hopefully a quad-core processor and retina display will be featured on new iPad model.
I really hope iPad 3 comes with some genuine alterations and not a few mere changes just for the sake of it. As far as the higher resolution is concerned, the present resolution is also not bad, so why should people buy it unnecessarily.
I just got the iPad 2 a couple of months ago, ugh. I know I’m gonna want the new one haha!
Fun! I am interested to see what the improvements and additions are.
I’ve been holding off. Even bought the wife the iPAD 2 for Xmas and still didnt pull the trigger.
Let’s see what’s in the 3 and maybe make a play.
I love the new IPad, its amazing. It feels like I am learning somethin new about it every day. Does anyone know when the new IPhone is coming out? I heard July but not sure.
