The invitations have been sent out (right in the middle of Google's keynote speech at Mobile World Congress) and the iPad 2 sales are stalling.
The details on the invite give nothing away, simply reading "We have something you really have to see. And touch."
Apple's launch of the new iPad 3 is imminent, so what should we expect?
The Telegraph says that new iPad 3 is expected to offer a higher resolution Full HD screen.
Bloomberg believes that the iPad 3 will pack a quad-core processor.
ComputerWorld took a literal slant, saying that if the image on the invite is not digitally altered, then the iPad 3 will have no "home" button.
The iPad 3 could feature the wireless standard Long Term Evolution (LTE), according to The Times Of India.
MacRumours says we should expect a thicker iPad. They believe the iPad 3 will have a 9.5mm aluminium shell.
So whether the rumours are true or not, when can we get one?
Apple.pro reported via Sina Weibo, China's version of Twitter, that a delivery of iPad 3 unites has been shipped from China to the US already.
Whether an iPad 3 is announced, or another gadget, delivery should be expected shortly following the announcement.
