Assume March. In 2010, when the first iPad was revealed, Apple was aiming for a March release (which ended up being April due to delays at the FCC). Last year they did release the iPad 2 in March and you can expect the iPad 3 to launch in March as well. If it comes one week earlier (last week of February, as the rumors go), than that's nice. April is unlikely.

What no. Usually only iPod gets updated around september!

This has been Apple's schedule for iDevices for years:
March - launch of iPad
June - launch of iPhone
September - launch of iPod

Year and year again. Only in 2011, Apple decided to put the two last events together (iPod and iPhone), into an October event.

iPad 3 is most likely the onliest iPad this year.

That or you're gonna need a shed load of money to buy it all and keep up-to-date. As everyone knows, Apple will constantly be updating their products year on year, it's just the way they work.

The iPad 2 (for me) was a good buy at the tim (May 2011) and I keep looking at these reports of what is 'rumoured' to be released on the iPad 3, and yes of course it's going to be better but not enough better to make me buy one or for me to wait from May 2011 till the release date of the iPad 3.

No one will no anything, but if everything goes as planned, it will be released on March. But, if it goes like the iPhone, where it was released about three months after predicted date, then hell, I'm gonna be disappointed.
Features? Just expect minor/same design, faster processor (higher clock or quad core), 1GB of RAM, and higher resolution. That's about it.
