    We all know how secretive Apple is with new product releases; however, I found something interesting that corroborates speculation that the iPad 3 (or something like a 2S...don't forget that possibility!) should be announced on March 7th.

    I was looking at Refurbished iPads

    After adding almost any* refurbished iPad 2 to the cart and selecting "Pick Up" at store, the availability date for almost every** store is March 6.

    I know the community is becoming better at figuring out their top-secret releases, but I figure any clue is worth sharing. (Side-note, happily I should be receiving my tax return at around the same date ;). )

    Thanks for reading, I hope I helped increase your anticipation instead of wasting your time. :eek:

    * - I selected most of the available refurbished iPad 2's on the official site. Practically every Wi-Fi only version indicated that it was March 6th. I found just a few AT&T ones at different dates, but perhaps that is just a matter of more variables involved with dealing with the phone companies.

    ** - I checked several dozen stores on several models. I started in the Chicago area (where I live) and tried a few others in the NY area and elsewhere. (It was easy to check many stores by checking "change store" in the shopping cart, entering a zip-code, and clicking "Check Availability" straight down the list.) "March 6" was almost ubiquitous...

    March 6th also shows up for some accessories that are not in stock. Maybe that's when they are getting a big shipment? Don't really know.
