Here we go again.
The iRumour mill is back up and running following a very brief rest post the 4S launch.
This time it's iPad talk - and the word is (according to DigiTimes) that the next generation of Apple's tablet protege will launch in March. But it won't be a massive upgrade and is only being labelled an "iPad 2 upgrade" rather than an iPad 3.
The changes we're expecting will include a thinner design (yep, thinner than the already waif-like iPad 2) and better battery life. Considering the iPad lines have always had pretty solid batteries, we're excited to see what exactly this could mean. Elements like a Retina Display to match the iPhone's capabilities, faster processors and the likes of Siri would also be welcome inclusions.
If you're after a real iPad 3, then the article reckons you're best waiting a few more months because the iPad 3 will, apparently, come in the third quarter of 2012.
Quite frankly, we'd take this all with a pinch of salt as until real leaked photos are found (or someone leaves one in a bar), then nobody knows what is going on inside that Apple campus other than those on the payroll. In fact, most of them don't know either.
And when you look at the debacle of the iPhone 5 becoming the iPhone 4S and us still not even knowing that the iPhone 5 definitely even exists, you can understand why.
Good for Apple's PR machine though. You can't buy this kind of publicity.
