Next iPad will be iPad HD not iPad 3, will supposedly be available on March 16


Numerous online tech outfits are saying that the new iPad won’t be called the iPad 3, and instead will be coined the iPad HD. The news comes to us via several credible tech blogs and sources like Mashable, VentureBeat and CNET. Tie that in with an earlier report of parts listing the new iPad as the HD from accessory makers Belkin and Griffin, then you have a pretty good case when it comes to the naming convention. The HD name also makes a lot of sense, especially in the light of the most oft repeated rumor that’s been circulating – that the new device will have a 2048 by 1536 resolution screen that trumps nearly everything else currently in the market. We also think other features that the rumor mill has been circulating – like LTE for instance – won’t make an appearance in this iteration, simply because there’s too few countries and territories using the next generation cellular technology. We’ll know more later today, once the company officially launches the device in the US later tonight.
