iOS 5.1 & iPad 3 public launch expectations

Apple’s next generation iPad 3 is still expected early part of this year, and despite there being no concrete information to go on, the tablet is hoped to come in March with an announcement at the end of February. This would bring it in line with the official release of the iPad 2 a year ago.

According to redmondpie.com via Japanese site Macotakara, it has been reported that the tablet may actually come sooner than anticipated, but with production of the iPad 3 already underway and reaching bursting point in the coming weeks, the release is more than likely going to be in March.

Rumors of what it will look like and its specs still remain a much talked about topic, and many are hoping that the new iPad 3 will incorporate a Retina display much like Apple’s iPhone 4 and new 4S. A display size is rumored to be in the region of 9.7-inches with a resolution of 2048 x 1536. Just the other day, our very own James reported on the iPad 3 possibly arriving with LTE as well as the more likely coming to fruition that of a quad-core A6 processor.

In relation to this, check out our recent article in which we told you that some gamers amongst you were actually considering selling or trading-in their games consoles in preparation for the iPad 3’s arrival.

Whilst on the subject of the iPad 3’s entrance, its also been reported that the Cali company may use this event to announce the final build of iOS 5.1 allowing all iOS devices to incorporate the Siri voice recognition feature, this will please many hoping to see it on the new iPad slate.
