MMi received a credible tip tonight that Target is updating its system to reflect the iPad 3 market introduction in early March. The source in question is intimately acquainted with the retail giant’s web presence and confirms that the third generation Apple tablet will roll out next month.
It’s certainly not the strongest rumor we’ve heard about Apple’s third-generation tablet to date. After all, Target employees are never known for their insider knowledge. However, it’s not the wildest claim we’ve heard, either.
Last week, a source for All Things D confirmed that Apple will hold a media event in San Francisco to unveil the iPad 3 during the first week of March, while it is widely believed that the device will launch around one week later.
The Loop’s Jim Dalrymple also backed up those claims.
