After much speculation, Apple announced today the highly anticipated iPad 3 will be unveiled March 7. Media outlets received invitations to a press conference to be held in San Francisco reading, “We have something for you to see. And touch.”
While little information has been leaked about the iPad 3, rumors include a better camera and a high-resolution screen. Other rumors suggest the popular iPhone 4s application, Siri, will be included with the iPad 3. I’m beginning to speculate the iPad 3 upgrades will be similar to that between the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s. However, I wouldn’t put it past Apple to reveal a big surprise or two next week.
After the iPad 3’s release, expected to be mid-March, it will be interesting to see how it performs against other tablets on the market. The tablet line, which has set the bar for the market, needs to keep up the momentum or risk losing its share to other less-expensive tablets.
