We were talking of iPad 3 and iPad HD while the best that Apple had to say was, ’3rd generation iPad’ in one of the promotional videos. That’s as far as it gets.

Otherwise, all Apple says is ‘the new iPad.’The iPad 3 is called the new iPad and nothing more. Of course, for the buyers, this needn’t come as a problem at all. After all, the new iPad is what they’ll be asking for.
Sometime back, there was quite a lot of speculation on what the new iPad will be called. With backing from Gizmodo which relied on Griffin’s latest case for iPad 3 listings, the name iPad HD caught up.
Of course, Apple has been unique. They’ve just tried to keep it as simple as possible. And so, it’s the new iPad instead of any other moniker that will only add to the device commotion. At the event, Tim made it look as if Apple is marketing the iPad as a valid and perfect replacement to laptops! With this ideology in mind, it isn’t strange the new iPad is called so, without any numbers or nomenclature that defines it as a series in the iPad.
The new iPad will be available for pre-order starting right now – but it will be ready to be shipped only by March 16, Friday. While specs like 4G LTE, iOS 5.1, A5X and the much hyped Retina Display HD (3.1 million pixels) have come as expected, disappointments appear as no Siri and high pricing for the 4G variant. Of course, no 128GB iPad either. Who was asking for it though?
