If You Want To Give The iPad 2 A Miss How About An iPad 3 In September - Smarthouse (http://smarthouse.com.au/Home_Office/Notebooks_And_Tablets/W9L8A5K4)

Seems highly unlikely. Any thoughts?

Very unlikely in my opinion.

I think this rumour came and went...

did you read the features it's going to have?

better cameras with flash....
NFC for use on public transport....
thunderbold port....

those feature really dont seem to resonate with the idea behind the ipad.
seems like people still think it's a giant iphone that is more like a computer.

when steve said 'year of the ipad 2'
i think we can trust him on that.

it's highly unlikely because:

1. Apple/Jobs said that "2011: Year of the iPad 2"
2. It's not in the regular product cycle timeframe. And in September? A typical time when iPhone demands are trying to be met, and Apple's preparing for their annual iPod offerings. Large pressure already to the supply and assembly chain, and another iPad 3 is just going to blow all their plans apart. Perhaps, this could relate to the next generation iPod Touch.

That's what I'm thinking :D

This rumour was another case of people linking random facts with fiction to gain page hits and to hinder iPad2 sales.

The iPad has its release schedule just like every other device in the Apple "i" line up. They are not going to change that mid year just because some blogger decides thats what he wants.

This rumour was started by Gruber, which he dismissed after the ipad2 event
