http://gizmodo.com/5884777/the-ipad-...pear-march-7thThe iPad 3 Will Appear March 7th?
Pour yourself a glass of red wine and put on your tech gossip pants, because we've got another iPad 3 rumor: iMore says Apple's next tablet will be announced on March 7th, packing serious power.
According to their sources "who have been reliable in the past," we can expect the following:
The relayed word from iMore's Rene Ritchie—who's usually pretty reliable—jibes with AllThingsD's "first week of march" prediction, as well as Apple's tablet track record. Whether or not Apple's big reveal is exactly on March 7th or not, it's almost certainly popping up somewhere around that point on the calendar. Now we just wait and see what trickles out ahead of time. [iMore]Apple currently plans to hold their iPad 3 announcement on Wednesday, March 7, 2012. Along with the 2048×1536 Retina display, the iPad 3 will feature a quad-core Apple 6 system-on-a-chip, and possibly 4G LTE networking.
I was so close to buying one. May as well wait unless they offer some mad deal when you buy an iPad 2. I'd be pissed if I just bought one and then the 3 comes out
MotorCityJoe- Since 2007: You talking to me?
This comment pertains mainly to the comments on the article as it appears on Gizmodo's site.
Man, would people quit *****ing about the stupid USB or SD slots on the iPad's already. If it was that big of a deal to Apple that it have those features it would have already.
I hope they finally include a USB port on this one.

4G access on ATT & Verizon
http://consumerist.com/2012/02/repor...-networks.htmlBut according to a new report, that could all change when the latest iPads are unveiled next month.
The Wall Street Journal reports that at least the Verizon Wireless and AT&T versions of the new iPad will run on those companies' 4G LTE networks. It's not yet known if Sprint or T-Mobile iPad customers will get 4G access.
The report states that AT&T and VZW are hoping that a 4G LTE iPad, which sources tell the Journal will be announced in early March, will help draw new customers to the high-speed networks they've spent billions developing.
It will also be a big test to see how these LTE networks stand up to increased demand, as iPad users currently consumer anywhere from 4-8 times as much data as iPhone users.
At January's Consumer Electronics Show, Verizon Wireless announced it was working with OnStar to bring 4G LTE access to vehicles so that people could plug in devices like iPads to turn their cars into moving entertainment centers.
Apple sucks, get a Zune.
