Okay iMore nation, we'll keep this one short and sweet -- when will Apple release the iPad 3? As in, not when will Tim Cook or Phil Schiller show it off on the keynote stage (we think that will be March 7), not when can we pre-order, but what will be the actcan we line up, buy it, and get our geeky little hands on it?

Apple traditionally put the iPad up for sale on Fridays, at least they have the first two years with the original iPad and iPad 2. But which Friday?

Will it be the same week as the event, only two days later on March 9? Will they need a week to coordinate, and aim for March 16? Will they want time for pre-orders and wider distribution and go on March 23? Or will they make us wait until the end of the month and hit March 30?

And will it, once again, be U.S. only at first, or will they be more aggressive, like the iPhone 4S launch, and hit more countries, faster?
