iMore: Apple to Unveil Quad-Core iPad 3 with LTE on March 7th

According to iPhone/iPad news blog iMore‘s “sources who have been reliable in the past,” Apple will unveil the iPad 3 on the 7th of next month. Their sources claim that the next-generation tablet will be equipped with a quad-core A6 processor, the much-rumored Retina display, and “possibly” LTE capability for AT&T’s upcoming network and also Verizon’s current one. While most of these specifications check out with previous reports, iMore seems to doubt that the next-generation tablet will include Long Term Evolution communication capabilities.

Update: Jim Dalrymple of The Loop has confirmed iMore’s report with a “yep,” but only pertaining to the March 7th date and not the rumored specifications.

A previous report from The Verge suggested that the iPad 3 would not be quad-core, but all other reports have insisted that Apple’s next tablet will indeed possess such technology. Additionally, BGR reported that the device wouldn’t include a Retina display, which also goes against most other reports. It’s hard to make sense of all these reports, but hopefully next month’s (rumored) event will shed some light on the subject.
