iPad 3 Reportedly Scheduled to Launch in February

A good number of rumors surfaced over the past few weeks claiming that Apple is planning to launch its next-generation iPad tablet in February 2012. A most recent report event suggests a specific date of the launch as February 24 – the birthday of Steve Jobs.

One thing is sure that the launch of iPad 3 is more than likely in February. The first iPad was launched back in April 2010, while the second generation tablet was appeared in March this year. We are trying to gather more and more information about the next generation iPad which all points its release in two months time.

If we consider Verizon, which is the largest cell phone provider in the United States, running short of iPad 2 stocks. On the carrier’s website, you can clearly notice that the carrier is out of white iPad 2 stock in both 16GB and 32GB variants. This has been confirmed by the Verizon customer service representative who verified that the stock is surely out and they could not even say when it will be available again.

As for Apple, its supply constraints are normally indicative of a product refresh. As we have known that Verizon is out of its two most popular iPad variants, this clearly shows that Apple’s new tablet is around the corner.

One cannot deny the fact that Verizon’s iPad 2 were never on sale like the Wi-Fi models were in the start of this month. And also it is worth noting that Apple has not had any issues completing iPad 2 orders since July.

Another important point that one should note here is the refurbished iPad 2 that Apple offered for $419. While Apple has the tradition of offering refurbished iPads, it has also offered a refurbished model of current generation at a discounted rate of $50 rather than $80.

These evidences are no doubt not concrete enough to base over speculation on. Still, if you are planning to have Apple tablet, it is recommended to wait for a while and let yourself hold off for next couple of months.
