Apple iPad 3 Rumors Buzzing

Rumor has it we’re about two months away from the next iPad release. Here are the features that iPad 3 prognosticators are buzzing about:

* Instead of a radical redesign, the iPad 3 is likely to look pretty much like the iPad 2, just as the iPhone 4S is a kissing cousin to the iPhone 4. The iPad 3 may be slightly thicker, however, which could render existing iPad 2 cases incompatible. It’s doubtful the next iPad will be as thick as the original Apple tablet, of course.

* The iPad 3 will have significant hardware upgrades, such as a faster A6 chip, improved front and rear-facing cameras, and a Sharp-made screen with 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution. The iPad 2, by comparison, has an A5 processor, so-so cameras, and a screen resolution of 1024 x 768. 

* Apple’s Siri virtual assistant technology is also rumored to be an iPad 3 feature, according to 9to5Mac.

* Speculation about a second, smaller iPad to compete with Amazon’s Kindle seems to be flickering out at the moment.
