iPad 3 pictured in the wild! Maybes

iPad 3 pictured in the wild! MaybesIf the iPad 3 launch event does go down in early March as recent rumours suggest, that means we’ve as little as two weeks to wait. ‘Citing.

As we approach the imminent official unveiling of the iPad 3, the highly anticipated (to put it mildly) tablet has been snapped out and about in the wild. Er, purportedly.

Normally we’d be ready to wolf down a generous serving of salt with stories like this, but this guy - leaked by Apple Daily - looks like he might be the real iPad 3 deal. Ok, maybe just a sprinkle of salt.

A couple of things to note from the supposed iPad 3 snapshots. First, compared to the humble iPad 2, the iPad 3 will have a more gradual taper from the back to the edges.

Second, on the back, is what we’re told is an 8MP camera, similar to the iPad 3’s cousin – the iPhone 4S.

Other than that, the pic looks very much like a, uhm, iPad. However, we’re told to expect a little extra meat on the iPad 3, thanks to enhanced internals including a quad-core A6 processor. Good times.

I’ll almost certainly be picking up an iPad 3, and a PS Vita. How’d you like them Apples?

My keen eye has identified one other difference as well! The mute switch will come switched "on" as default whereas before it was set to "off" as demonstrated by the photo above.

Apple and their features, what will they think of next
