Apple iPad 3 to launch as iPad HD, according to Griffin leaks

The expected Retina Display may see the iPad 3 officially Christened the iPad HD, while we've got more hints on the on-sale date for Apple's latest tablet

Case manufacturers have a mixed record when it comes to predicting the names and physical forms of upcoming Apple products, but if the latest batch prove accurate we could be preparing to welcome the iPad HD to the family on March 7th.

Gizmodo has obtained, what it claims to be part-listing from Apple accessory manufacturers Griffin and Belkin naming the forthcoming new tablet as the "iPad HD (3)."

With the next iPad widely expected to boast a Retina Display boasting twice the resolution of the iPad 2, it wouldn't be outlandish to suggest that Apple could adopt this new naming convention.

Speculation claims that a Retina Display-enabled iPad would boast a greater pixel density than a full 1080p HD TV.

While Apple fans and blogs alike continue to debate what the company will name the device, Thursday evening also brought more clues regarding when it may actually go on sale.

AppleInsider reports that BestBuy is expecting new accessory supplies on March 11th, while the opening of a new Apple Store in Houston Texas on 16th March, just over a week after the launch event, could also signal the on-sale date.

Of course, UK buyers may have to wait a little longer than our Stateside counterparts.
