When Will the iPad 3 See the Light of Day?

It's hard to believe but the iPad 2 has only been released for a year. It seems like it's been with us forever already. Everyone's been talking about it since the day it was released.

Even today, everyone is still drooling over the iPad 2. More and more apps are getting released each day and more and more people sign up for an Apple ID. Apple's hold on the tablet market is tremendous. It seems like even if Apple does release the iPad 3, the iPad 2 will continue to sell well into next year. In fact, an iPad that has been refurbished or just well taken care of can have a resale value of at least $300! That's an impressive price.

If you don't remember, Steve Jobs introduced the iPad 2 to the world back in March 2011. Now, people are speculating that the iPad 3 is coming in March, to coincide with the first anniversary of the iPad 2.

There are many reports that say the iPad 3 will arrive in March. The news website "allthingsd" reasons that since Apple still isn't holding an event this February, expect that there will be something in March. Here's what they had to report on the matter:

"Sources say the company has chosen the first week in March to debut the successor to the iPad 2, and will do so at one of its trademark special events. The event will be held in San Francisco, presumably at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Apple's preferred location for big announcements like these."

There are plenty of rumored features of the iPad 3. One of the most notable rumors is that the tablet will feature a screen all the way to the edge. Other speculations to be included on the iPad 3 are a sharper screen resolution with Retina Display, 4G speeds, NFC connection and 3D features.

Will 2012 be the year of the iPad 3? We can only wait and see what Apple has to say. The March event might even be delayed, as the company has recently been under a lot of fire for their labor practices. When the New York Times reported the harsh working environments of Foxconn employees in China, the world took notice. CNN even interviewed an 18 year old employee, describing the working conditions there.

One group even campaigned against the cruel business practices of Apple. It garnered at least 300,000 signatures. Because of tremendous pressure, Apple's current CEO, Tim Cook took action against these allegations.

He said that he would coordinate with the FLA to conduct audits on their Foxconn suppliers. This will show transparency for Apple, because they're famously known for being a secretive company. We'll see an update in the coming weeks regarding this matter.

If you're waiting for the iPad 3, then it's just around the corner. If everyone's hunch is right, then Apple will announce something big in the following months. Expect the world to change again this year.
