Apple will be holding its event to launch the new iPad and probably a few other products on March 7, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time. That means March 8, 2012 2:00 a.m. Philippine time, or less than two days away. We now we are going to see a new iPad, either an iPad 3 or iPad HD, and maybe a new Apple TV, a 15-inch MacBook Air and even a lower cost iPad 2. There is even a possibility Apple might launch an iPad Mini or a new iPod. If you want rumors, search around the web. My advice, sit tight and wait. You will know for sure, soon enough.
Apple is great at keeping things secret till the last minute and surprised everyone with the iPhone 4S launch. The only thing you can be sure of is you will be seeing a new and improved iPad.
What is more interesting is that Samsung is having their own event in Amsterdam on March 15, 2012. If you remember last year, Samsung announced their Samsung Galaxy Tablet at the Mobile World Congress only to release improved designs after iPad 2 came out. Maybe Samsung felt it would be best to wait this year and see what they would have to release to compete with the new iPad. Samsung could have several models waiting in the wings. Or Samsung might have something big coming, and want to steal some of Apple's thunder.
This time around Samsung is keeping things quiet. When they launched the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, two sets of specifications came out, and the more conservative of the two turned about to be correct. Not much point in speculating about this one too.
