Apple plans to unveil its third-generation iPad 3 tablet on March 7th according to a new report. Apple watcher iMore cites unnamed sources in claiming that the Cupertino-based tech giant’s next iPad will come equipped with a 2,048 x 1,536 Retina display and a quad-core A6 processor. The site also says Apple’s new tablet could come with embedded 4G LTE connectivity. The reported specs mirror countless earlier reports, however this latest claim comes alongside a date for Apple’s announcement: March 7th. The timing coincides with earlier reports claiming that Apple plans to unveil the iPad 3 in early March and iMore has a solid track record, so media invitations for Apple’s iPad press conference should be distributed soon.

UPDATE: Jim Dalrymple of The Loop has chimed in and confirmed that this is the date.
