Apple launching iPad 3 on 7 March?

It’s interesting to note that there’s even rumors on when Apple send out their event invite. And they are quite accurate. Apple really send out an event invite yesterday just like what the rumors said. The event is on 7 March 2012, 10am. (8 March, 2am Singapore time)

We can be sure that Apple will be announcing the next iPad which is rumored to be called iPad 3. The iPad 3 will most likely have faster processor, better camera and better display compared to the iPad 2. If you notice the event invite, the iPad’s screen looks extra sharp. The form factor will most likely be the same. It will most likely still be 9.7 inch screen.
But one very interesting thing from the invite image is that there is no home button on the iPad. OK, maybe the iPad is on landscape mode. But it could also be a hint that the new iPad will not have a home button. This is totally possible since the Multitasking Gestures on iOS 5 are able to replace the home button. Using 4 to 5 fingers, you can pinch an app to return to the home screen and swipe up reveal multitasking bar. The only thing that the Multitasking Gestures can’t replace is the shortcut for taking screenshot.
There’s also rumors that Apple will unveil the new Apple TV. Well, like all rumor mill story, take this with a pinch of salt.
