We all remember how the "iPad 2.5" was going to be released in time for the holidays last year with the TRUE iPad 3 is coming in March? Just more speculation with no facts.

Then get ready for 2013. "The Year of the iPad". New iPads every month!
I heard the iPad 6 was coming out for Valentine's Day, and also did holograms instead of normal visuals.

Let's see what the sarcastic 8 Ball says:

"Do you really need me to tell you? And by the way, I've been cheating on you with the iMac! AND THE IPAD 2!"

So yeah, whatev.

iOS deviced will support Thunderbolt sometime...

There must be support for ThunderBolt in iOS devices sometime soon... This will provide a huge leap in the sync speed of Pads and Phones.

iPad 4, iPhone 5, killer feature?

Does anyone else remember the "credible" rumors of an iPad 3 in the Fall, with a new iPad in the Spring?

It's not happening. Apple has made it clear they are sticking to their typical product life cycle period of 9-15 months. With iOS products its always been minimally 12. I don't see that changing, and if it does, that means we would see the iPad 3 in February (since January is running out of time), and Apple would NOT release an iPad 4 days before Christmas.

Won't be long until we hear rumors of the iPhone 6 or 7.

It's getting a bit silly now.

They are both computers. Just a different category... appearing to different audiences.

If I were a tablet maker and I was going to launch against the iPad3, I would leak a story that an iPad4 was sure to follow. It puts some cold water on the iPad3 hype and opens people up to explore the whole market. And it worked, against the iPhone4s: how many people on this forum declared they would hold off for a phone with a "5" in the name?

It's technology. EVERY new product is an interim Upgrade.

I think they meant to say the "iPad 3s" will be out in October.

Here we go with these stupid rumors again. Apple will not release an iPad in March and another one in the Fall. Ipad 3 comes out in March with retina display, A6 and better camera. Ipad 2 stays around as the budget option. New, redesigned iPhone comes out in the Fall. Rinse, repeat.

Not sure about the 7" Ipad. With my iPhone and iPad, I personally don't need something else in the middle.

I'd be surprised if they released two iPads in one year. This idea seems to imply that the technology they want for iPad 3 wont be ready by March. If this is true, I think Apple will just hold out. It seems like they actually care about their products, they're not just a cash cow, so I'd be very surprised if they were going to market, produce and sell a product they all knew would be replaced a few months down the line.

Hopefully Apple doesn't plan on doing this. Android is annoying enough what with the Droid Charge, Droid Bionic, Droid Moronic, Droid Idiotic....

However I do think they will keep iPad 2 on the market for the rest of '12 and bring the iPad 3 in as the must have toy for the year. I'd probably go for it finding my first gen getting rather slow with frequent browser crashes etc.

Who would buy it? The vast majority of the consumer buying public who don't read this site. Plus, some people who do read this site and don't pay attention which is why there is always the refrain of "Damn I just bought an _ithing_ last week and now Apple release a new one!"

It's the same reason Apple is selling truck loads of the iPhone 4S when it's basically another swiss-cheese G4.

Yeah sure .. because sync speed is the biggest concern of people.
That "killer feature" wouldn't even work on the majority of the users computers, besides with iCloud and wireless sync we are certainly moving away from tethered syncs.

Seriously, guys. It's bad enough that you're still posting anything from Digitimes, but to do a write up for their copy/paste of the exact same fake rumour they made up last year? It's almost insulting.

The real question is, who at Digitimes is shorting AAPL that they have to try and muddy every release by claiming it's only interim?

Again with this nonsense? No. Not happening. Maybe an iPad mini later on. Not an iPad 4.
