Apple’s media event to be held in the US on March 7 has left many in a frenzy, with rumour mills running wild and those with an older generation iPad running to sell their devices ahead of an anticipated iPad 3 launch.
Australians have flocked to sites including eBay in a bid to sell off unwanted past-generation iPad devices, with almost 700 listed on the popular site as of Saturday afternoon.
It comes ahead of Apple’s Wednesday event (Thursday morning Australian time) at which the company is expected to unveil the next generation iPad – which the rumour mills suggest will either be called the iPad 3 or the iPad HD.
Features of the tablet are expected to include a higher resolution, retina display similar to that of the iPhone 4 and 4S and the current iPod Touch line-up as well as higher resolution cameras and potentially even support for next generation 4G or LTE networks.
And as if the March 7 event wasn’t firing up the rumour mill enough, overnight new suggestions in the form of web visitor logs have surfaced suggesting Apple is already in the midst of testing the next version of its mobile operating system, iOS 6.
