Apple is expected to make their big iPad 3 announcement today.
Last week, Apple sent out emails to journalists, inviting them to a private event behind held in San Francisco today. The invitation read: "We have something you really have to see. And touch."
This, with the rumored reports of a March iPad 3 unveiling, has led to speculation that the iPad 3 will be debuted today.
The event, and alleged iPad 3 unveiling, is to take place today, March 7th, at 10 a.m. Pacific Time.
No one knows exactly what the iPad 3 will pack in terms of features, but multiple sources have confirmed the same rumors of a Retina display with a 1536×2048 resolution, which is twice the resolution of the current iPad 2 screen. The next-gen iPad is also rumored to feature 4G LTE support, have a higher resolution camera than the iPad 2, feature Apple secretary Siri, which could all lead to a possible $80 price hike.
iPad 3 rumors and speculation have led to a boom in Apple's value which currently sits at $536.80 (via). If the next-gen iPad is announced today I'm sure that number will only climb.
Last month, Apple reported the company's fiscal 2012 first quarter revenue was $46.34 billion, up 73% compared to last year's fourth quarter report. Apple set all-time records company records, selling 37.04 million iPhones and 15.43 million iPads in the quarter.
