Apple iPad 3 To Launch First Week Of March 2012; Hit Stores ASAP “Guaranteed” [Report]

Given Apple’s past refresh cycles with its iPad tablet, all eyes are on March for the Cupertino-based company to unveil the 3rd-generation Apple tablet: the “iPad 3.”

Apple iPad 3 to launch 1st week of March, release date in stores right after

Only a day after purported pictures of the iPad 3 casing being leaked have new details come about a potential release date. According to a report by AllThingsD, the iPad 3 will launch at a special event in the first week of March. Now if you’re wondering how credible the source is, they did correctly predict the iPad 2 launch a week before it happened.

The report also adds that the iPad 3 will go on sale soon after it is unveiled. This ties in with a tweet from a couple of hours ago by BGR’s Jonathan Gellar who had this to say: “iPad 3 is going to be available ASAP after announcement, guaranteed.”

Given that the iPad 2 hit stores exactly one week after its debut, Gellar’s tweet suggest it could be sooner than that in the case of the iPad 3. We’ll keep you posted as more develops.
