You’re going to have to take this one with a huge grain of salt as it comes straight from unreliable sources. According to Focus Taiwan, via 9to5Mac:

A local Chinese-language newspaper reported Friday that iPad3 might be launched on Feb. 24 to mark the anniversary of the birth of Apple’s late co-founder Steve Jobs.

While the rumor of the launch date itself doesn’t sound completely out of this world, the source is unknown and probably not worthy of trust.

  • Not impossible…

  • It’d be great to have the iPad 3 launch on my 18th birthday

  • Why publish worthless dribble like this ? “Source is unknown and probably not worthy of trust”- yet you publish it to the blog anyway. Didn’t you survey your readers about whether we wanted you to publish rumors and received a resounding, overwhelming NO ? Why ask if you’re just gonna ignore us and publish crap like this ?

  • 138 blog posts use the annoying “pinch of salt” or “grain of salt”

    enough. get in the dictionary and learn a new word/phrase

    It was probably just a reasonable guess, no need to criticize the source.

  • I find it unlikely.
    since Steve Jobs wanted them to move on and he was very clear about it.
    lunching the iPad on his birthday would just make the company look like they’re trying to grab on with whatever it’s left of steve…
    I bet no one yet thought of lunching anything on Tim’s birthday or anything like that…
