Apple May Launch The iPad 3 In February On Steve Jobs’ Birthday

A new report going around from Focus Taiwan claims that Apple is preparing to launch the iPad 3 on February 24, the anniversary of Steve Jobs’ birthday.

The report, which was picked up by 9to5Mac, gets that date from Taiwanese suppliers who spoke to a Chinese newspaper in the area.

It’s also worth noting that February 24 is a Friday, a day which Apple typically likes to launch new devices on.

Of course, this is just a rumoured date, but it does coincide with other reports we’ve heard that Apple is targeting a February launch for the iPad 3. If that’s the case, expect an announcement in mid-February.
