    Doubt we'll see iPad 3 this year. iOS 5 will be enough of an update this fall, plus iphone 5 is now overdue (I am assuming it will come in sept with the new iPods to bring those release dates together). I don't expect new hardware til 2012.

    Right, you cannot take the existence of those strings as meaning a new product is right around the corner. Those strings appear all the time in OSes, sometimes long in advance.

    I would expect 2012 as well, although I heard one rumor that suggested maybe an iPad 3 before Christmas. If true, that would be the earliest you could expect to see a new iPad, about five months from now. And probably longer.

    In March, Steve Jobs specifically said that "2011 is the year of the iPad 2", not the year of the iPad in general, so I don't think they'd release that and contradict themselves. Besides, why set up competition between the iPhone 5 in September with another iPad? Looks like they're already banking on success of iPhone with no mention of iPod Touch :)

    Yes, I think that at some point in the infinite future Apple will release an iPad version 3.

    To the OP...No.

    Spring 2012.

    ...and I predict at least 2012 new threads about the iPad 3 coming out this year.

    Agreed. There will not be a new iPad later this year.

    never.

    the ipad is dead.

    the next big thing will be the ibrain, a cortical implant.

    Gawd, this again? We can't even get an iPhone every year and you expect TWO iPads in about 8 months?

    I do not think, I know!
    We have no idea when it will happen of course, this year or the next one.
