Apple iPad3 is coming! Thursday 2am Malaysia Time GMT +8
You’ve heard all the rumors, and now Apple has finally confirmed the details of its next iPad launch event. It will take place on Wednesday, March 7th at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco. (March 8, 2AM Malaysia Time GMT +8)
The company is keeping things suitably vague beyond that, of course, promising only that it has “something you really have to see. And touch.” You can be sure we’ll be there live to find out exactly what that might be.
The news confirmed earlier speculation that Apple would debut the newest iPad – which most have labeled iPad 3 in early March, which later settled on March 7, the same day of the week Apple used to launch the original tablet in 2010 and last year’s iPad 2.
The background shows part of an iPad screen, with a finger poised over the Calendar app, which is set to March 7. If the background is a photograph of the iPad 3 and not digitally manipulated, it hints that the tablet will not sport a physical home button, as have earlier iPads.
Some bloggers argued that the photo also showed a higher-resolution, or so-called “Retina,” display.
Apple will host the launch event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, a regular venue for the company’s press-only announcements and where former CEO Steve Jobs introduced the iPad 2 on March 2, 2011.
This will be the first time that Jobs, who died last October after a long battle with pancreatic cancer, will not host an iPad launch. The event will kick off at 10 a.m. PT, and wrap up an hour or so later.
Most experts believe the iPad 3 will feature a higher-resolution screen, a faster processor – perhaps Apple’s first quad-core – and more internal memory. They have been split on whether the new tablet will support the faster LTE data networks.
Apple has not said anything about the price of the new iPad – some recent rumors have claimed it will cost about $80 more than current models, iPad 2 – when it will go on sale or even the official name of the tablet.
Prices, on-sale dates and naming are likely to be disclosed March 7.

The invitation says:
“We have something you really have to see. And touch.”
Something we really have to see? The image shows a higher resolution than the current iPad 2. We believe that Apple hints iPad 3 to have high-resolution Retina display.
And Touch? Perhaps it is an iPad without a Home button. Have you noticed that there’s no Home button in the image of the invitation? It will be better as the Home Button create a lot of problem for the current user? Even my iPhone Home Button giving me a lot of headache!
The iPad 3 will be the 1st iDevice introduced by Apple CEO Tim Cook after the passing of Steve Jobs.
I have seen a video on this iPad 3 Concept Features and it’s really amazing and when could this be done?? Anyway it’s a good concept to be come reality, I hope soon!
Awesome iPad 3 concept. This iPad 3 video contains advanced CG iPad 3 features on a new iPad design. A huge step up from iPad 1 features or iPad 2 features.
Key highlights of the iPad 3 Concept features include edge-to-edge screen, magnetic iPads with near field communications (NFC) and 3d holographic display for multiplayer games.
This computer generated iPad 3 concept video pushes the envelope in iPad design and iPad features, just like its hugely successful sister video ‘iPhone 5 Concept Features’ did with iPhone design and iPhone features. We hope this Concept iPad 3 preview provides you as much entertainment as an iPad 3 commercial or iPad 3 official video or an iPad 3 review, before the actual iPad 3 unboxing.
