Announcement of the iPad 3 today.
Will be interesting to see what improvements have been made over the past 12 months.
Lots of rumours floating around. in the past two releases apple have pretty much doubled the spec every time, and suggestions of a new 128gb version, while moving from dual to quad core
So interesting of all though, is from macrumors, which suggests a smaller 8gb iPad2 to compete with the cheaper amazon kindle fire.

What time is the press conference?

My guess is an SGX543MP4 GPU with a Mhz boost on top. That or the 544 but I fail to see why they would need that as the only real diffrence between a 543 and 544 is DirectX support. I still hope it will contain a series 6 chip, will be amazing if it does but it’s a little too early for that.
im rather exited about this event, been waiting for the updated ipad for quite a while now, but with all the speculations and differeant opinions and leeks, who knows what they will bring
I hope they bring out something that fixes the ipad 1 ios 5 app crashing bug that a lot of users including me have at the moment, that has to be the biggest mistake i ever made, upgrading to ios 5 and now not being able to browse the internet in safari for longer than 10 minutes until it sends me back to the home screen. Fingers crossed for me for ios 5.1 or ios 6 which i've seen rumours for.
The press conference is at 6pm UK time.
Should be good to see though, maybe a reduction in price of the iPad 2
Oh and most people think it will be called the iPad HD.
Should be about 6pm our time. Though may be a build up from 4.
I think just a revision. Chip upgrade, screen upgrade, RAM upgrade, maybe camera upgrade.
I can't think of anything else they would add. Doubt an SD slot would be allowed. Stylus would be a big reversal. Maybe a sneak peek or a preview of IOS6.

8gb won't even be worth it. The OS takes up around 1.2gb of that by itself, so you'd be left with 6gb usable.suggests a smaller 8gb iPad2 to compete with the cheaper amazon kindle fire.
Even tho the iPad2 doesn't have a "retina" display, if the iPad 3 does it will still download full versions of iPad3 apps that will take up a lot more space than apps do at present. You'd fill it within a day.
iPadHD? The iPhone xS of the iPad line?
Interesting that they are saying there will be this minor upgrade and then another in October. I would be really narked to get one now and then 6 months later there be a newer one. A year is kind of understandable but 6 months?!
