iPad 3 Shell Leaked Online – Launch Date Set for 7 March

The iPad 3 is about to become the most leaked gadget ever. Yesterday a Chinese gadget blog posted  set of spy photos from the inside of the iPad 3 factory. They also posted some  number of side by side comparisons of the shells for the iPad 2 and iPad 3.

There's an extensive gallery of photos, but the only ones I care about are the new iPad. The new shell seems to be almost identical to the old one, and depending on the camera angle it is either slightly thicker or thinner. It looks like the iPad 3 will have a bigger camera, which we already suspected from an earlier leak.

But what's even better is that MIC Gadgets also tipped the launch date.  The new iPad is set to be shown off just a few weeks from now at the Yerba Buena Center.

Folks, do you reaalize that there have been so many leaks for this iPad that you can almost assemble a repair manual? I know that at first I didn't accept last week's leaked display was the real thing, but now I do (actually changed my mind the next morning). And then there are the parts that leaked in the UK.

And yes, I do believe the leaks are real. There are simply too many now for them to be faked. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that the volume of leaks suggest that Apple is doing it on purpose; it's part of their mrketing plan. What do you think?
