Apple iPad 3 Cases: OtterBox predicts iPad 3 release

American cases and cover maker OtterBox has branded Apple 'predictable', allowing consumers to register interest in upcoming iPad 3 cases

 

Gadget protection provider OtterBox has launched its holding page for its upcoming breed of Apple iPad 3 cases with the covers manufacturer predicting a March arrival for the next-gen Apple tablet.

Suggesting that Apple is “predictable” in its product cycles, the American protective solutions company has prematurely launched a Apple iPad 3 cases holding page on its official website with consumers able to register their interest in the brand’s upcoming tablet protectors.

“Excitement is building and the rumors mills are in full effect. iPad 3 is on its way, but when?” a post on the official OtterBox website’s iPad 3 holding page says. “If you haven’t seen any of the chatter, everyone is guessing that March will be the month for launch.

“Historically, this makes sense as the iPad and iPad 2 were announced around the same time in 2010 and 2011 respectively. Apple is secretive, but almost predictable. They have been pretty consistent with updating their mobile products in 12 month intervals, so my guess is in line with the speculations around the web.

Apple iPad 3 Rumours

Tipped for inclusion on the second-generation Apple tablet, the iPad 3 is expected to play host to a higher resolution screen, similar to the Retina display offering found on the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.

"The new display is capable of greater resolution than the current iPad, with more pixels on its screen than some high- definition televisions," an unnamed insider source announced recently. "The pixels are small enough to make the images look like printed material. Videos begin playing almost instantly because of the additional graphics processing."

Elsewhere recent iPad 3 rumours have suggested the iPad 2 replacement will feature a form factor 1mm thicker than its predecessor with the increased internal space to be filled with the new display, an A6 quad-core CPU and improved optics for the rear-mounted camera.
