    iPad 3 on February 24, Steve Jobs' birthday?

    Source: GMA News Online

    Report: iPad3 to be launched on Steve Jobs' birthday?

    "Will the next-generation iPad, Apple Inc.'s popular tablet computer, be launched on the birth anniversary of the late Apple co-founder, the late Steve Jobs on February 24?

    Taiwan's Central News Agency cited a report by a local Chinese-language newspaper that quoted sources in the supply chain that this may be the case.

    CNA said the "Economic Daily News" cited its sources in the supply chain that the next iPad could be launched between mid-first quarter and end-March in 2012.

    A separate article on Apple enthusiast site 9to5mac.com said Apple has released new products on Jobs' birthday before.

    "For example, the Thunderbolt MacBook Pros earlier this year, and the re-designed Safari 4 beta in 2009," it said.

    Jobs, born on Feb. 24, 1955, died last October after a battle with cancer. He was credited for devices such as the iPhone, iPod and iPad."

    Rumors: iPad3 to Be Release Feb 24, 2012

    Friday December 23, 2011 9:17 am PST by Eric Slivka


    FocusTaiwan reports (via 9to5Mac) that Apple pushing its manufacturing partners to meet deadlines that would allow the company to launch the iPad on Steve Jobs' birthday, February 24th.

    A local Chinese-language newspaper reported Friday that iPad3 might be launched on Feb. 24 to mark the anniversary of the birth of Apple's late co-founder Steve Jobs.

    Citing sources close to Taiwanese makers in the iPad3 supply chain, the Economic Daily News said the gadget could be launched in mid-first quarter of next year or by the end of next March.


    According to the report, workers at several iPad component suppliers as well as manufacturing partner Foxconn will have limited time off during the usual Lunar New Year holiday. The Lunar New Year holiday itself falls on January 23rd next year, with workers generally receiving a number of other days off from work around that date.

    [​IMG]
    Sources have been reporting a variety of rumored dates for an iPad 3 introduction, with some claiming a debut in the March-April timeframe while others have pointed to a February launch being in the works.

    Apple last year launched new MacBook Pro models on Jobs' birthday, although that unusual Thursday introduction was likely a convenient coincidence driven by the debut taking place during the Presidents Day holiday week.

    Re: Rumors: iPad3 to Be Release Feb 24, 2012

    I doubt that very much. iPad has been a mid-year cycle since it fist launched two years ago. The current one is selling like crazy. There are no issues with the current iPad 2. There is no compelling new technology available that is lacking in the iPad 2.

    From a corporate and economic standpoint, it doesn't make sense to rush into the launch of a new model. By rush, I'm referring to the iPad 2 being only a half a year old.

    Of course, with Apple, anything can happen. I wouldn't be surprised though if Apple pushes the iPad refresh cycle down to the same timing as iPods, which was joined by the iPhone just this year.

    Re: Rumors: iPad3 to Be Release Feb 24, 2012

    I just got my iPad 2 last May, 2011. I think Feb is a bit early for a refresh. Then again, its Apple. Anythings possible.

    If they do release an iPad 3, I hope it'd sport the ff new features:
    Quad core processor
    Retina Display
    Higher res cameras (Both front and rear)
    Option for a 7"
    Wishful thinking - MC slots and HDMI ports

    The iPad is almost perfect already. I can't think of anything they can add on except Siri.

    I agree that iPad 2 is practically perfect. Web-browsing is pleasureable even compared to my MBP. It's just that I can't help from noticing the pixels compared to the iPhone 4. Siri, Retina Display and higher optics would be conducive specs for the upgrade.

    That rumor would happen only if Apple sold out it's inventory of iPad 2.
    But by then, Christmas, new year, lunar new year would be over, and unless Apple come up with a better 8 megapixel large aperture autofocus camera with flash, & quadcore processor, more ram, siri, dedicated hard buttons, usb, there is no reason for me to replace my Palm T/X + canon camera + iPad 2.

    The iPad 3 will only come out if the new processor is ready and the large retina display or better
