Apple iPad 3 surfacing in March, report says

Apple will reveal the iPad 3 at an event in March, “sources” told the All Things D site affiliated with the Wall Street Journal.

The site’s co-founder, Walt Mossberg, is particularly close to Apple so the report carries more weight than most of the constant rumors about the company’s upcoming hardware.

Don’t expect a huge change in the iPad, though. The new model will be a lot like the current one, except it will have a faster processor, graphics system and 2048 x 1536 Retina Display “or something close to it,” the report said.

Apple dominates the web tablet marketplace but it will face renewed competition this year.

New Android tablets are coming, perhaps including a 10-inch Kindle Fire, and PC makers are gearing up to introduce full computers with instant startup and the same proportions as the iPad.

Those slim, tablet PCs will run Windows 8. News of the iPad 3 debut in the first week of March comes the day after Microsoft disclosed that a preview version of Windows 8 is coming Feb. 29.
