    Not sure why. I'm debating on whether or not this is good news.

    It is very likely that it will get the retina display.

    Just look at some of the 'rumors' and the image of the invitation.
    Some other sites even gave a comparison.

    Seeing Apple, it should start at $499 USD.

    No, I know what it can do. ;p
    I just don't really know why anyone on here would want one.
    I can understand why someone would buy it what with all the marketing but I don't see how that person would enjoy continuing using it.

    What is it for?

    ie. does it do anything really well that other things... don't?

    Inside you, all around you
    heres what they are going to show off
    -iPad 3
    -Retina Display same dimensions of 9 in screen 2048x1536 dpi 264ppi (confirmed)
    -A6 Processor Quad-Core @ 1.0ghz or the A5x Dual Core clocked higher ?
    -1 GB RAM (has to be with the retina display so somewhat confirmed)
    -Memory Sizes 16, 32, 64, 128?
    -Size little bit thicker than iPad 2 (confirmed)
    -2 Models Wi-Fi Wi-Fi + 4G/3G (confirmed) (Sprint, Verizon, AT&T)
    -Back Camera 8MP (iPhone 4S camera)?
    -Front Camera FaceTime HD (confirmed)
    -iOS 5.1 (confirmed)
    -Siri (confirmed)
    -Possible Hz0 coating for water proof?
    -Gorrila Glass 2?
    -Bigger Battery (confirmed)

    thats all for now maybe USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt IO but highly doubtful think some anaylist said iOS devices couldnt handle Thunderbolt b/c of how they are designed

    Agree on the Retina Display, processor, RAM and iOS 5.1.

    But...
    1. The iPad already has a 16GB capacity. The one missing would be 128GB. 128GB would be quite likely as the 4S already has a 64GB capacity and the iPad is likely going to store more stuff.

    2. I am actually quite skeptic about the camera. From 0.7mp to 5mp is quite far-fetched, needless to say 8mp. Besides, it does not have a flash still (based on rumors). I bet the upgrade will be to about 3.2mp, like the ones on the iPhone 3GS. As for the front camera, it is quite likely to feature FaceTime HD.

    3. Hz0 and Gorilla Glass 2 will likely just add costs. I personally think it will not be implemented.

    4. A bigger battery is possible. However I do see the battery life remain at 10 hours instead of any possible extension.

    5. What I think would be likely will be Siri implementation with GLANOSS, just like on the iPhone 4S. Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 sounds near impossible.

    Gorilla Glass I doubt. Can't have Apple making durable products now, can we?
