Many other things are expected for the iPad 3, which was teased in the invite as Apple said "We have something you really have to see. And touch."
That teaser seems to point to the much anticipated iPad 3 "retina display," expected to be double the resolution of the iPad 2 (in both directions) or 2,048 x 1,536. Other changes from the iPad 2 to the iPad 3 include:
- dual-core A5X or quad-core A6 processor (of late, this has been leaning toward the A5X --- an enhanced A5 processor)
- Slightly (1mm) thicker
- 8MP rear-facing camera
- HD Facetime camera
- Better battery life
- Nearly identical form factor to the iPad 2
- Possibly $70 - $80 more expensive per price tier
- iPad 2 to continue to be sold at a lower price with lower storage
The truth will be revealed on March 7.
