Apple has made it official. The company’s iPad 3 event is being held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco on Wednesday, March 7 at 10 a.m. PST. The company began sending out invitations to the event today.
By the look of the attached photo, rumors that the iPad 3 will include a Retina display seem founded. In addition, the newest tablet could also include a better resolution, better camera and tapered shell, and an A5X processor. In addition, the iPad 3 could arrive with a higher price tag than its predecessors.
A new Apple TV is also expected to arrive on March 7.
Word on the street is that the iPad 3 is going to have a Retina Display sporting a 2048×1536 resolution. That’s higher than what we consider HD in 1080p, and really, a resolution that’s challenging for a desktop GPU’s to push in 3D games, much less mobile GPU’s. The iPad 3 is going to need to sport some serious horsepower under the hood, and finding out what kind of mobile processor technology Apple is implementing to drive this screen is what I’m most looking forward to next week.
