    Well, if your bought your ipad for a reason and not just because you want it, you would become less bitter even though the ipad 3 comes with a major upgrade. :)

    the retina display alone is enough to upgrade, at least for me. The only question is if the pricing will be retained or not. I think samsung's latest super amoled tablet is at 30k++ right?

    Many news today reported that Apple will name its device iPad HD. Will be a big surprise for anyone targeted the keyword "iPad 3"

    If the new ipad is an iPadHD and not iPad3, do you think Apple would retain the iPad2 same as the one they did w/ iPhone 4 and 4S (also 3GS)?

    sort of like iPad2 will be an entry level iPad and the iPadHD would be their flagship tablet. if this happens, the new iPad would be priced higher and the current iPad2 would still priced the same.

    27.5k for cash. That's not just Super AMOLED Plus, it has phone capabilities.

    Folks, the keynote will take place early morning of March 8, Manila time. Most likely around 2am. (check in at 1am if you really want to play it safe)

    As usual, our Site Administrator (Nino) will be setting up a Live Topic thread once the keynote is about to begin. There, we can discuss to our hearts' content whatever it is that Apple will be announcing later on. Some of us might drool while some might be disappointed. Either way, I'm hoping we have a very healthy conversation later on (and may the internet connection gods favor us!).

    This rumor thread will be closed when the Live Topic thread goes online. Afterwards, we encourage you to continue the discussion in the proper sub-forum/s.

    Thanks!
