Could Apple be preparing to surprise consumers -- and the growing competition -- with a Retina Display packing iPad 3 at this September's traditional iPod event? Daring Fireball's John Gruber is guessing they might while TechCrunch is saying they're hearing it's on the table. DF:
How could Apple release a third-generation iPad just six months or so after the second one? Maybe it won’t be an actual next generation model. Maybe it’s more like an iPad 2.5, or iPad 2 Pro — a new higher-end model that sits atop the iPad product family, not a replacement for the iPad 2 models (which, of course, haven’t even been released yet).
