Macotakara, a Japanese blog, reports that Apple will announce iPad 3 in a media event due in the month of March, ahead of its launch. Macotakara has a good track record in the Apple rumor business.
Macotakara was widely qouted ealier this month for their claim that Foxconn Electronics and Pegatron Technology, the Apple’s contract manufacturers, has issued orders to begin iPad 3 assembly, apparently for the launching in March.
Previously, the blog reported that a special Apple event was due in February to announce iPad 3 but later they told MacRumors’ Arnold Kim that the February event, described as “strange”, would not be a product event.
Machine-translated quote from the Macotakara article:
I reported that Apple was going to hold Special Event in early February according to Asian supplier and source from united states, but this report told a half-side of truth. Apple will hold “Strange” event at February instead of Special Event.
This Macotakara’s claim also confirms an earlier Bloomberg report which backed the March launch of the iPad 3 by claiming production will reach “full volumes by February”. Yesterday we reported about leaked screenshots of iPad 3 iBoot tool which shows a Quad-Core A6 processor and LTE Functionalty.
