iPad 3 rumours..full steam ahead..Launch next month?

Crews are still cleaning up in Las Vegas after CES and the iPad 3 or whatever it will be labeled rumour train is already running at full steam. Here’s a roundup of the latest from the rumour mill.

The most credible of the bunch comes from the Bloomberg Report that suggests the next iPad 3 will have a new high resolution screen.

So what can we take away from all seems certain we will see a new iPad before the end of March and it will likely have a high resolution screen..will it be called an iPad 3? personally I don’t think so..I believe a labelling such as iPad 2HD is more likely and Apple might continue to sell the iPad 2 as a lower price ($349) model. Then the rumour machine would crank up with stories of an iPad 3 launch to come before Christmas 2012..does it ever end?
