More rumors of iPad 3 coming in March, but no "strange" event in February

iMore heard a while back that the iPad 3 would be coming March 2012, and several other outlets have heard the same thing. Macotakara is is the latest. However, in their version there was also a "strange" report about a "strange" event, scheduled for February.

I reported that Apple was going to hold Special Event in early February according to Asian supplier and source from united states, but this report told a half-side of truth. Apple will hold "Strange" event at February instead of Special Event.

Jim Dalrymple of The Loop, however, says when something smells "strange", it usually is.

This is not going to happen, according to my sources. Apple will not hold an event in February, unusual or otherwise. That’s it.

Dalrymple's sources are typically excellent, so if you were holding hope for a February surprise from Apple, stop holding.
