Apple holding iPad 3 event in early February?

Yes, we're reaching that point in the Apple product cycle – we've gone from speculating on the device (which is a certainty) and moved onto talking about the launch event. That event, for the new iPad, is said to be taking place in early February.

Yes, just a matter of weeks away if the details from Japanese website Macotakara prove correct. They quote two separate sources, one from the US and one from Asia, both essentially pitching the same details.

The headline act is the iPad 3 (or 2S or 2HD, the jury is still out on that one), with the support coming from the next version of Apple's mobile operating system, iOS 5.1. The date seems a little early compared to past years – last year's event was 2 March 2011. But it sounds very much like the the shelf date is more or less the same as last year, mid-March in the US, late March for us UK purchasers.

The rumours are starting to come together now, with the most recent reports suggesting that the new iPad will pack a faster processor, a high definition screen and for compatible countries, LTE connectivity. Nothing radical, just a better device.

As soon as we get official confirmation of those details, we'll let you know. But you might want to kep a little cash back in the next couple of months if you're an early adopter.
