With the March 7th Apple event fast approaching, iPad rumor mania is in full swing. As we know from Apple’s history of iPhone releases, there is no guarantee that the much-anticipated will be called the iPad 3. Some new data suggests that it may actually be called the iPad HD.
Gizmodo has been covering spottings of the “iPad HD” moniker in various places. First, some accessories, such as the IntelliCase from Griffin has been updated to include “iPad HD” in the name and product description. While, obviously, Apple is the best of the best when it comes to secrecy surrounding its launches, with the expected announcement right around the corner, it would make sense that more product details were released to trusted vendors to ensure accessories are available in a timely manner.
Even more interesting, analytical captured with an application known as Tapatalk, has been occasionally tracking traffic from a device named “iPad HD” since April 2011. The device is also registering a screen resolution of 2048 x 1536, which could of course be from a monitor, but it does just happens to line up with the rumored resolution of the next gen iOS tablet.
