Media event set for September 9, launch likely ~10 days later.
iPad 3 Event in March, An 'Unusual' Apple Event in February?
The original report had claimed that Apple would hold an iPad 3 media event in February with product launch in March. We had expressed some doubts about the long lead time between event and launch. Mac Otakara has had a mixed track record in the past, but has had enough hits that they continue to warrant attention.
The site is now reporting that while there will be an event in February, that it would be a "strange" (or unusual) event rather than the usual product announcement event:
I reported that Apple was going to hold Special Event in early February according to Asian supplier and source from united states, but this report told a half-side of truth. Apple will hold "Strange" event at February instead of Special Event.Meanwhile, they now report that the iPad 3 announcement and launch will both take places in March.
AppleInsider contacted the author for clarification but was only told that the February event would not be a product event.
