The latest rumors on the day before Apple’s iPad 3 announcement event include a number of sources saying that the next-gen iPad will be called the iPad HD, not iPad 3. The argument here is that iPad HD is a much clearer indication of the key new feature – a hugely improved, retina quality display for the next iPad.
We’ve seen Apple go with the iPhone 3G name for their second-gen iPhone, so the iPad HD name as a possibility doesn’t seem far fetched.
I’ve also seen a survey claiming that up to 42% of current iPad owners have plans to buy the next iPad, whatever its name ends up being. So I’m curious – how many of you dear readers are planning to get the iPad 3 / iPad HD? It would be great to hear how you’re leaning – if you have a moment add a comment saying whether you plan to buy, you’re not planning to, or it all depends on what Apple announces about the next-gen iPad.
