Apple iPad 3 Speculations Continue; March 7th Release Still Doubtful

February 21, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It seems no other upcoming device has been discussed as much as Apple iPad 3. The leaks about the iPad 3 have been hitting news space for quite a while, and here comes a bunch more.

You might remember reports that talked of the iPad 3 featuring lots of similarities with the predecessor model, the iPad 2. In fact, the story doesn’t just end there. If you are interested to know more about the newest leak we have, read on.

Yes, the back casing is more or less identical to that of the iPad 2. And the alleged tapering towards ends seems to be around 1 to 1.5 mm thickness, much deeper than we thought it would be.

Though there hasn’t been any official confirmation on the report that bezel would be narrow, the image identifies a thinner layer of display. The real story could be known from a future leak, so keep a watch on the happenings around you.

We hear there’s going to be little possibility of storage upgrade and you would continue to see the iPad in 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB capacities. But, the tablet offers a supreme 2048 x 1536 pixels screen, which would really stand out from displays sported by any contemporary device around.

We had told you a few hours ago that the logic board of the device purported to be the future iPad 3 features a chip labeled A5X. This might possibly be just a prototype of the original device, and the final product might pack an A6 processor in its core.

Early rumors had also suggested that the iPad 3 would be equipped with an 8 megapixel shooter at the rear, but it seems that was just a misconception. The company might have dropped that movement due to high production cost it already incurred.

The rumor maintained that Apple wanted to release the device on February 24, that’s co-founder Steve Jobs’ birthday. A manufacturing crunch following the Lunar New Year holiday week is alleged to have pushed the date to March 7.

However, if you get a chance to check the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts calendar, you will realize that there are no programs scheduled for March 7.Yerba Buena Center has been venue to the iPad launches, as you know. That revelation in fact makes us think the date might be just a mistake.
