The Wall Street Journal recently reported that Apple has been testing out a new, smaller-screened tablet than the iPad and iPad 2 that could be released alongside the iPad 3 in March. The new display reportedly measures 8 inches diagonally, down from the 9.7 inch screen of the current iPad range.
The web is buzzing today over a purported leaked photo of the upcoming iPad 3’s casing. As always with Apple rumours, we suggest you don’t put too much stock in this as it’s currently totally unsubstantiated. However, the images do convey some surprising information, should they turn out to be the real-deal.
The Apple iPad rumour wheel never stops turning and for those of us out here on the rim it can sometimes be difficult to wade through all the dross and find that one relevant and hopefully plausible little gem of potential truth.

So with this possible release date looming closer and closer what can we say we know about the iPad 3?

There’s a rumour doing the rounds right now that Apple might be releasing a new iPad in time for Christmas. Whether or not this could be the iPad 3 or an upgraded iPad 2 is uncertain, although speculation seems to be favouring the latter of the two options.
Apple finally announced iOS 5 at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) and it seems that they’ve actually been listening to their fans. If you’ll remember a while back we posted our iOS 5 wish list and detailed most of our issues with the now iconic mobile operating system (OS) employed by Apple. So you can imagine our surprise and pleasure when we discovered that many of our hopes for the iOS platform had come true.
That’s right, tonight (Friday 25th March) at 5:00pm the Apple store will fling open its doors and do its very best to serve the crowd of Apple fans that are already queuing outside.
