Buy an iPad from Best Buy with the warranty. When it is a year old and the new version is out, break it and return it to Best Buy. They will offer you a replacement or store credit. Take the store credit and buy the new model iPad at Beat Buy with the warranty. Always have a new model and lose roughly $60 a year.

According to Telstra ads in Australia, make little pixel characters fly backwards as if on rollercoasters.

Streaming video would be my big thing. 3G is just way too slow to do that now.

Really? I watch BBC iPlayer live stream pretty much every day over 3G without issue

Yes it does.

There are potato chips which provide a great experience, especially with a beer.

cnbc

I'm looking at CNBC app's news under AAPL ticker on my iphone and it still showing "...news the tech giant will unveil a quad-core iPad 3 with 4G LTE tech in NY next week..." I hope it's true.

If by 'time to recover' you mean time to fly to the event sure. But otherwise, I doubt Apple really cares. It's not like the same folks simply have to be at both.

As for CNBC, I call BS on them having a clue. And after this I won't be shocked if they get Gizmodo'd.

So supposedly Apple has "controlled leaks" to create hype about its products.

I wonder though if competitors like Samsung or the like would "leak" information about Apple products that is not true, to attempt to overhype them the week before supposed release and hopefully (for them) create disappointment in the announcement.

Every time you see junk like this makes you wonder how the traditional news outlets can still act so haughty insisting they are "professional" and bloggers cannot be because they have no newsroom. With all of CNBC's resources it should strive to confirm before it prints. They've apparently just been schooled by blogger Jim Dalrymple. Fancy that.

Would be nice to have an LTE-free (but still 3G) version for places without LTE? seems annoying if it's going to drive up prices, and we won't probably won't have it here for another 2 years...

Just my own prediction.

iPad 2 will still be available but for $399/$499/$599 in Wifi Only and with A5X.
This will make it more competitive.
iPad 3 will have A6, Retina Display and 3G/LTE models staring at $629.
No iPad 3 Wifi Only. That's the upsell and the way they will push everyone into the cellular world.

Could the A5x processor be for the Apple TV and the A6 for the iPad 3?

I hope I'm wrong, but putting those three major things in one upgrade, and inclusive of a camera update, will never ever happen. Apple doesn't work that way - they always hold back features, and the announcements always are less than rumors and expectations. ALWAYS. We will get Retina and a camera upgrade certainly, but my guess that we get neither 4G LTE nor quad core. Of the two - 4G LTE is more likely, but still doubtful.

Wow. Talk about linear extrapoliation by a clueless reporter who belives just because the education event was in NYC, the iPad 3 event will be in NYC.

This person has obviously never seen an Apple keynote before.
