iPad 3 release date draws closer

Ok, the word is out, Apple has just invited a whole bunch of media outlets to an Apple event, where almost everyone is certain they will  announce the iPad 3 release date and its new features . The event is being held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco at 10AM PST, on Wednesday, March 7th (which would mean 5am on March the 8th for us in Australia). So mark this date in your calendar and until then, it’s anyones guess what the next iteration of the world’s most popular tablet will be.

The  slogan by Apple for the invitation is “We have something you really have to see. And Touch”

Speculation is rife as to what the new features might be and at the top of that list is a high resolution display, an A6 Quad Core Processor and 4G capable. if any of these rumours are not met then we think the iPad 3 will have lost its place at the top of the tablet pantheon and it would leave the door wide open for other manufacturers, like ASUS and Samsung, to take a big slice out of Apple’s current strangle hold of the tablet market. So we highly doubt they will come out with anything less than the above hardware improvements, but only time will tell.

We’ll keep a close eye on the March 7 event and provide a detailed post directly after it. We’re really  looking forward to the iPad3 release date and to finally pit the latest iPad against the ASUS Transformer Prime.

So what new features do you think the iPad 3 will have? Let us know in the comments section below.

And what comparisons tests do you want us to run against the ASUS Prime when we get our hands on the iPad 3? Again let us know  in the comments section below.

The iPad 3 release date is just around the corner.
