Apple iPad 3 Launch Event on March 7?

The latest information obtained by iMore suggests that Apple may be launching its next generation iPad, commonly referred as the iPad 3, on March 7.

The date falls in line with what AllThingsD reported last week, about the next iPad model being launched in the first week of March. iMore also pointed out two specifications that have been previously reported - a 2048 x 1536 Retina display and a quad-core A6 processor. 4G LTE networking is mentioned as a possible feature too. 

Edit: The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) confirmed that the iPad 3 will come with LTE capability. Citing information from "people familiar with the matter", WSJ also stated that the iPad 3 will switch to a slower network technology if LTE is not available. 

Other alleged specs include a thicker chassis to accommodate a twin light bar system used in higher-resolution displays, an almost identical physical appearance as the current iPad 2 and a whopping 14,000 mAh battery. Cases manufactured by a Chinese company also hinted of a possible iPad 2S model with a bigger camera module. 

It is noteworthy to mention that iMore has been consistent in providing accurate information on Apple's products, notably the iPhone 4S launch and its specifications. Whether iMore hit the bull's eye again, we will only know when Apple sends out the official event invite.
