Apple’s iPad 3 is Nigh

iPad 3?The third coming of Apple’s popular and ground-breaking tablet is almost upon us, if you believe what all the tech pundits and soothsayers have been exclaiming these past few days.

And this time, they just might be right. The tech world is at a perfect point for a rumor like this to actually be true. With two major public events on the horizon in just a few weeks – either one could be the perfect spot for Apple to show iPad 3 to the world.

But will they? Both the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and MacWorld are scheduled for January, 2012, but it is anyone’s guess whether those will provide the launch platform for the new iPad. And though many signs in Apple’s supply chain point to something big coming soon, it may be a little too early to say January is that time.

Apple hasn’t been at MacWorld since 2009, and while a return would certainly be welcome, it is also possible that the company would skip the event and hold an announcement on their own.

Sifting through all of the leaked reports however, shows that there is an above average chance the the iPad 3 will have a much better display, perhaps even one with a QXGA resolution  of 2048 x 1536.

The other big unknown is whether a smaller,  7.85-inch iPad model, will also be unveiled, in the hopes it can compete with Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble’s tablet.

Stay tuned!
