In addition, the same sources are saying that there will be a separate launch event a week later, which would translate into the 23rd of March. You might recall we reported earlier that information had leaked that Germany would get an iPad HD launch on March 23.
The information about an "additional" launch event matches up perfectly with the earlier info, which would mean that the iPad HD's international launch will be a week sooner than the iPad 2's, which trailed the U.S. launch by two weeks.
Meanwhile, it's now pretty much assured that the new iPad will be called the iPad HD, to promote its retina display, though it's still unclear if the device will support LTE or not. However, an LTE iPad would be more important to Verizon, as its 3G CDMA network can't approach the speeds of AT&T's HSPA network, meaning an LTE product is far more important to it than to AT&T.
With that, the fact that, on Tuesday, Verizon Wireless began teasing that "Something Is Coming" front-and-center on its home page, points to a possible LTE iPad HD.
Naturally, nothing is a done deal until Apple says it is a done deal, so we'll know more after the iPad HD launch event on Wednesday.
