iPad 3 coming in March

So says John Paczkowski, whose pipeline into the Apple world is particularly solid.

I skipped the iPad 2, waiting for a retina display, so I’ll be buying a couple of these. (My wife has recently taken a liking to our iPad, thanks to the Time Warner Cable app, which turns any room into a TV room.)

Will probably go wi-fi-only this time — I turned off my iPad’s 3G subscription months ago, and haven’t missed it — though it’ll be interesting to see if Apple goes LTE with this device or if it’s holding out for the next iPhone.

It’s going to be a fun week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in late February. I suspect that, like last year, there will be a lot of Android tablets on display. I also suspect, like last year, that they won’t mean a thing.
