The iPad 3 Will Appear March 7th?

Pour yourself a glass of red wine and put on your tech gossip pants, because we've got another iPad 3 rumor: iMore says Apple's next tablet will be announced on March 7th, packing serious power.

According to their sources "who have been reliable in the past," we can expect the following:

Apple currently plans to hold their iPad 3 announcement on Wednesday, March 7, 2012. Along with the 2048×1536 Retina display, the iPad 3 will feature a quad-core Apple 6 system-on-a-chip, and possibly 4G LTE networking.

The relayed word from iMore's Rene Ritchie—who's usually pretty reliable—jibes with AllThingsD's "first week of march" prediction, as well as Apple's tablet track record. Whether or not Apple's big reveal is exactly on March 7th or not, it's almost certainly popping up somewhere around that point on the calendar. Now we just wait and see what trickles out ahead of time. [iMore]
