Apple will announce the iPad 3 next Wednesday, and the iPad 3 may be sold alongside the existing iPad 2 if the rumors we have heard are correct, that would mean that Apple would need a new name for the iPad 3.
I mentioned yesterday that I thought Apple may end up calling the iPad 3 the iPad HD, as it will feature a high resolution display which is reported to come with a 2048 x 1536 resolution.
The guys over at Gizmodo have discovered some details from some accessory manufacturers, which point to the iPad HD name, although we will have to wait until next week to find out if this will be the actual name of the device.
References to the iPad HD have also been found in a data usage application called Taptalk, although the guys from Gizmodo do point out that this data can be doctored.
We suspect that the iPad 3 will end up being called the iPad HD, as this will allow Apple to continue to sell the existing iPad 2 as simply the iPad at a lower price than the new model which will be announced next week.
Apple now offers two versions of the iPad, the iPad 2 and iPad 3, have a look at the difference between the iPad 2 and iPad 3.
