Whether it'll be called the iPad 3, the iPad HD, or something else altogether, Apple is set to debut its third-generation tablet today. Since Apple almost never provides video broadcasts of its keynote addresses, PCMag, one of our content partners, is live at at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco to bring you minute-to-minute coverage of the event as it unfolds.
As has become commonplace with any Apple product launch, the rumor mill is churning overtime leading up to the announcement. Of the less-outlandish guesses on prominent new iPad features, an insanely sharp 2,048-by-1,536 Retina Display seems to lead the pack in popularity. And, of course, to push all of those additional pixels, the new iPad would need a processor upgrade to quad core. A version with a 4G LTE radio, a better camera, a revamped iOS, and Siri integration are also big bets. Personally, we'd like to see a lower price.
Speaking of what we want, here are the top 10 iPad features we're hoping for, along with what we expect to be announced at the keynote. What do you want to see in a new tablet? What else do you think will be unveiled San Francisco? A smaller-screen iPad? A new Apple TV? An Apple-branded rocket ship?
The event starts at 10AM PST/1PM EST, but we'll be around starting at noon EST for general tablet chat and to take your questions while we wait for the action to get underway. If you need a reminder, you can sign up for one below.
