iPad 3 announcement reportedly coming first week of March

Over the past few days there has been sporadic images of iPad 3 parts and cases. Earlier rumours have pointed towards Apple holding a press event sometime this month, followed by a full release in March. However, John Paczkowski from All Things D has a solid track record of nailing Apple events and reports that we’ll see the company make an official announcement the first week of March.

“Apple’s not holding an event in February. But it is holding one in March — to launch its next iPad. Sources say the company has chosen the first week in March to debut the successor to the iPad 2 and will do so at one of its trademark special events. The event will be held in San Francisco, presumably at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Apple’s preferred location for big announcements like these.”

As for the specs, the “iPad 3” is still rumoured to be the same overall design, but have a faster A6 processor and a better display with a 2048×1536 resolution.
