      I watched a news snippet this morning. CNET is claiming it will be called the iPadHD (not 3). The faster processor and 4g/lte (whatever it's called) is the reason I'll be upgrading mine.

      This release will have a pretty big impact as it will be the 1st LCD less than 23" to feature XD resolution.

      The next ipad maybe called iPad XD and not HD since XD is higher than HD.

      Processor will be the A5X higher clock and a faster GPU as Graphical performance is more important than CPU with the XD resolution.

      A lot of Android folks will say the Tegra 3 with quad core is more powerful, the reality is the Tegra 3 is a joke. The upcoming Snapdragon 4 dualcore already best it in many benchmarks. So a quadcore isn't necessarily faster. Nvidia failed to include a more potent GPU.

      It will take some serious GPU to run games at XD resolutions.

      But wait isn't the ipad technically already HD?

      It could be argued that it is already HD since it is capable of displaying 720p content.

      But it is decidedly non-HD in comparison to the iPhone 4/4S. The screen really does look like garbage when you use it side by side with an iPhone.

      But true 720 is 1280x720.

      1024x768 is just XGA.

      I'm dropping my 2 off to its new owner this afternoon. So hopefully the new one ships soon!

      New AppleTV, does 1080p. $99 on March 16th.

      New iPad is 2048x1536. Has over 1million more pixels than standard 1080p (1920x1080)

      A5X quad-core graphics. Comparing to a Tegra 3, Apple says the A5 is "twice as fast" and the A5X offers "four times the​ performance." Not sure of the benchmark here, folks.

      iSight Camera

      Voice Dictation

      4G LTE

      Same prices as before. It's slightly thicker and heavier than the iPad2.

      Pulling out the punches and says the A5X is twice as fast as the Tegra 3 in graphics... Luckily I already sold my Asus TF Prime for a good profit last week.

      I think this is the one to get for people like me that have been holding out. It looks like they checked all my "must have" boxes.

      I'm going to order one, but I'd like to know how much data is going to cost? And how much data I can use.

      Wow, this thing actually destroys the Sony Vita in graphical performance.

      My co-worker has one, I was not that impressed with the graphics. They claim it was PS3 graphics but it is just slightly better than the Sony PSP.

      You'll be surprised that Appstore sold more mobile games than Nintendo and Sony combined.

      I'm not surprised by the number of apps they sell... I still wouldn't compare the two.

      That's up to the carriers (AT&T, Verizon, etc.). I'll probably just stick to WiFi.

      Yes, but they didn't mention a month to month deal or anything else. I wouldn't be surprised by ATT if they went to a lame limited plan plus a 2 year contract. Wouldn't 4G use up my data very quickly based upon their current data caps?

      Data is Data, just takes less time to download it.

      Around the office, more folks are talking about buying the new iPad without even looking over the specs. This is crazy. People who 1st doubted the iPad as being an useless device is now talking about ordering one and asking about what are some good apps.

      My guess is there will be some ridiculous wait times and shortages.

      5GB at 4G is $50/month from AT&T or Verizon. Verizon offers 10GB/month for $80. Same "no contract" plans as always.
