We've been tracking iPad 3 rumors for some time now and they've begun to come to a head. The latest comes from iMore, which cites sources pegging Wednesday, March 7th as the date for Apple's announcement and The Loop agrees that will be the date. The first week of March lines up with earlier rumors, as well.

While parts for the iPad 3 have been trickling out for some time now, the exact specs for the tablet are not yet entirely clear. It seems evident that the iPad 3 will have a 2048 x 1536 display, a beefed-up GPU and an A6 processor, which may or may not be quad-core. Regardless, the bigger question is whether or not the iPad 3 will feature an LTE radio for 4G speeds — and unfortunately the jury is still out on that. Either way, if the March 7th date holds up, we won't have to wait too long for official word.
