So I hear that Apple's iPad 3 is launching later this week?

That's correct. Even though nobody outside of Apple's highly secretive PR machine knows anything concrete about it, the fact that the company has issued press invitations to a launch event on Wednesday 7 March featuring a picture of an iPad screen and the words "We have something you really have to see. And touch" is a pretty strong indicator that the next iteration of Apple's massively popular tablet computer is about to be unveiled.
