Early March tipped as launch date for iPad 3


Early March tipped as launch date for iPad 3

Simon Quicke
Those resellers wondering if this first quarter was going to have any significant product launches put down in the calendar might want to circle 7 March as the likely unveiling of the iPad 3.

Expectations are mounting that the vendor will launch the next generation of its tablet that day as it looks to keep a dominant hold on an increasingly competitive market.

Sources including the Wall Street Journal are busy trying to predict what the product will contain but the consensus seems to be building around a quad-core processor, better quality screen and 4G connectivity.

If that is the launch date it would only be a few days out, with last year's launch of the iPad 2 taking place on 2 March.

Apple has continued to dominate the tablet market, which was the fastest growing hardware segment for many in the channel over the last couple of months at the close of last year.
