Don’t Hold Out For “Strange” February Event, iPad To Be Announced In March
It’s hardly surprising to hear The Loop’s well-connected Jim Dalrymple note that, according to his sources, Apple isn’t planning on holding a “strange” event in February. Despite the oft-unreliable Macotakara’s claims of two events in two months (for February and March) – which we told you about yesterday – it would appear that Apple, as many originally expected, is looking to hold one single event in March, at which the iPad 3 will presumably be announced.
The tablet itself is expected to feature a quad-core processor, along with support for LTE, though nothing has been announced by Apple. The processor, we think, is a given; support for LTE is also likely – many thought this might launch with the fifth-generation iPhone, though AT&T did note that its first LTE iOS device would be the iPad 3, back in June last year. If this does happen, we can expect the iPhone 5 to follow suit later in the year.
As always, we’ll keep you posted.
This seems to be consistent with what I’m hearing from other places on the web. Guessing that the rumor mill is going to heat up all through February. It’s going to be fun watching how this all plays out.
