Apple sets iPad 3 launch event for TODAY March 7


Apple unveils the newest in its line of hugely popular iPads on Wednesday, it will be the first look at how the company plans to maintain a stranglehold on a tablet computer market it essentially created two years ago. The rumored device has been prematurely dubbed the iPad 3, although more recent speculation has centered on iPad HD, a name that would accentuate its expected high-definition display screen. As is par for the course when big things are afoot at Apple, the company hasn’t confirmed what will happen at Wednesday’s announcement, set for 1 p.m. ET in San Francisco.
