It's a New iPad, Isn't It?

There's no debating the iPad is a highly sought-after device in today's mobile market. Considering its past sales, there's no reason to question the iPad 3's market appeal. Even if it were to be the same old iPad 2 repackaged as an iPad 3, customers would buy it. That's the kind of grip Apple has on the market.
Apple is planning to hold a special event March 7 to unveil the company's next tablet, the iPad 3. So far, Apple has not divulged any details on the device, but a host of rumors are swirling, including speculation that the iPad 3 will get a Retina Display, ditch its physical home button and maybe even come with 4G connectivity. The excitement surrounding the iPad 3 has officially hit a tipping point. And people around the globe are wondering if it'll be a product worth buying. Given Apple's history, there shouldn't be doubt that the iPad 3 is a worthwhile purchase. Apple's first two iPads became the top slates on the market, and the iPad 3 promises to follow suit. Even if it the iPad 3 is an iterative update over its predecessor-an unlikely scenario-the chances of just about everyone wanting to get their hands on the device the first day it's available are quite high. Here, eWEEK explores why that's the case and explains why you'll want to buy the iPad 3 on launch day.
