Not Saying The iPad 3 Is Coming But...

I'm not saying that the iPad 3 is coming.  Nor am I saying the iPad 2S is coming.  I simply don't know what's coming but I do know that Apple is up to something.  And if you're a tech fan or fellow mobile warrior, you probably know that Apple has released a new iPad in the late winter or early spring timeframe.  So, I think I'm am not too far off if I say that Apple is going to be releasing something in the next 4 to 6 weeks.

This four to six weeks is just enough for me to be within the ball park.  The original iPhone introduced by Steve Jobs on January 27, 2010.  However, preorders did not start until March 12th and did not start shipping until April 3rd to long, long lines.  I know.  I was there.

The iPad 2 was unveiled on March 2, 2011 and did not start shipping until March 11, 2011.

For the next iPad update, I think I am within that ballpark.  It's unlike that Apple will delay its release by months the way it did last year with the iPhone 4S.  It's possible but highly improbably.  Apple wants to keep the momentum going and release a new iPad now will really keep consumers who bought into the original iPad an opportunity to grade while try to keep the pressure on its competitors.

Now, we don't know with certainty what new features will accompany the new iPad nor will we know what suffix it'll have, 2S or 3 or entirely something else.

There's been talks that we might see a natural improvement with the processor and the screen.  Just as Apple gave the iPhone 4 the Retina Display and the A4 chip, we are hoping that the next iPad will sport an improved processor with better graphics capability as well as higher pixel density screen.

Over the next three weeks, we're going to hear a lot of rumors.  As a matter of fact, we go plenty of juicy iPad 3 rumors (which I won't go into - again, I don't traffic in rumors. Speculations, yes.  Rumors, no).  The pace of these rumors will pick up.

So, you've been warned.  Plausible iPad 3 rumors galore headed our way with chances of heavy wishful thinkings at times through into the mix.
