This Is What The iPad 3 Will Look Like Head On

This Is What The iPad 3 Will Look Like Head On

At this point, we’ve pretty much seen every part the iPad 3 has to offer: rear casing, Retina Display, logic board, CPU, Heck, we’ve even seen cables for the sleep/wake button, the volume rocker, the mute switch and other assorted guts. If you only had the digitizer and front glass pane, you could probably just slap all these parts together and build yourself an iPad 3 from scratch.

Oh hey, what do you know: here are the missing parts we need to build a complete iPad 3! Will wonders never cease?

The new front panel and digitizer, spotted by Apple.pro, confirms what we have long suspected: turned off, the iPad 3 will largely be indistinguishable from the iPad 2. Maybe a squidge thicker. The real distinction will be when the iPad 3 is turned on and that beautiful 2048×1536 kicks on.

Great, but when can we expect the iPad 3 to land. Only Apple knows for sure, but popular consensus indicates March 7th.

    Hmm looks the same as the iPad 2. Fancy that.

    It’s cool. Personally, as long as it still fits in the keyboard dock for the iPad 1 it’s all good. Well, of course, it needs the upgraded goodies that have been leaked around these parts.

    I sincerely hope the iPad 3 looks nothing like a transparent screen with stickers, tape, and wired connectors dangling around.

    They always said Apple would go downhill without Steve Jobs.
