    Is Apple going to give a big surprise to consumers – iPad 3? Apple television? iTunes in the cloud? A touchscreen iMac?

    “Summer feels like a long time away. If my theory is right, they’re not only going to be months behind the iPad 2, but if they slip until late summer, they might bump up against the release of the iPad 3. And not only did they announce this with a distant ship date, they did it with no word on pricing,” Daring Fireball’s John Gruber
    A few days ago, we heard from a very good source that Apple was assembling the pieces for a “big fall surprise”. While intriguing, that could obviously mean anything. But the “surprise” part clearly means it’s something beyond the regular iPod/iTunes (and perhaps MacBook Air) refreshes that Apple does in the fall. Still, that leaves a lot of room for guesses. An actual Apple television? iTunes in the cloud? A touchscreen iMac? Who knows?

    Well, until today. We’ve now heard that this “fall surprise” is related to this would-be iPad 3. We don’t have any more concrete information beyond that. But, as of right now, the plan is apparently to release one iteration of the iPad in the next few weeks. And then blow the doors open with another new version in the fall.TechCrunch
    The rumors definitely going to push a great competition from Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb Tablets, BlackBerry PlayBook, and HP TouchSmart.

    On a consumer prospect What i feel it’s not an great idea to launch the iPad 3 in fall this year when iPad 2 is going to be out in spring this year.Even it’s not the Apple way to launch 2 different versions for the same product group (iPhone, iOS, iPad…)

    Would you be upset if you bought an iPad 2 in spring and Apple fielded an iPad 3 in fall, or do you just want new Apple tech as fast as possible?

    This quote is from HP talking about the WebOS release. I highly doubt Apple would let a company that is against them in everything they do in on when they will release new hardware.
