Well now that the iPad 2 has officially begun production...
What do you think of a high end, MacBook Air priced iPad with the retina 2048 X 1536 display you've desired? What would you call it? The iPad 3, iPad Pro, iPad HD or maybe the iPad 4G...
I would be willing to pay $1000+ for this high-end model, but Apple couldn't hold anything back!

Thus, my gut feeling is that Apple will move the iPad to a September release schedule, alongside the iPods. But they wouldn't want to wait over a year and a half from the announcement of the original iPad to announce the second one -- not with these stakes, and not with so many serious competitors trying their best to catch up.
We’ve now heard that this “fall surprise” is related to this would-be iPad 3. We don’t have any more concrete information beyond that. But, as of right now, the plan is apparently to release one iteration of the iPad in the next few weeks. And then blow the doors open with another new version in the fall.
This high-end tablet may not be a big money maker initially, but at least Apple will have all of the engineering done to implement higher production before the Christmas 2012 price drop!
