Bye bye iPad 3, hello iPad HD?

Retina display-based name change.

We reported earlier in the week that Apple may be ditching the iPad 3 name, instead calling it the iPad HD – and the evidence seems to be stacking up in favour of the name change.

Two of the usual "unnamed sources" have told tech sites VentureBeat and CNet that the iPad 3 will, in fact, be called the iPad HD, while usage reports from web forum app Tapatalk have corroborated the iPad HD name.

Apple renaming its new slate the iPad HD would be appropriate, considering it'll reportedly sport a 1080p-trouncing 2048x1536 Retina Display.

We'll be in a position to confirm or deny the rumours at Apple's launch event for its new iPad on March 7th. In the meantime, check back with our iPad rumour round-up for all the latest iPad 3 (or iPad HD) news.
