iPad 3 is already been out in the market since March 16, 2012 to selected countries. I was also one of those who grab a unit in our country last May. What I like most in this tablet is they upgraded some features and more thinner. It's new innovation Retina display and a Siri are just one of its new features. One thing I made so sad, that prior to this launching, I already bought variety of ipad cases knowing that it will fit, but wasn't because of the ipad 3 is very thin.
There is always going to be a new, unreleased product right around the corner. The leading edge of technology is, by nature, always changing. Sure there are times when it might be worth delaying a purchase. In this case, I would look at Apple's history of iPad releases, and for the first two iPads, Apple announced them in early spring, so you don't really have that long to wait if you want to be an early arrival at the iPad 3 party. I have seen a couple of articles that speculate a March release, but as far as I know that specific timing for release is just that - speculation.
I definitely think it is worth waiting. In addition to the superior display anticipated on the iPad 3, there will be a new processor and hopefully improved battery life. More power + better battery life = good times!
