Still wondering whether Apple will indeed launch a new iPad in the near future with an HD Retina Display? Well, thanks to a tipster, we were able to locate double-resolution iPad images in the latest iBooks app for the iPad. Apple’s next-generation iPad 3 is rumored to feature a high-definition 1,536 x 2,048-pixel display along with a quad-core Apple A6 processor, 4G LTE support and twice the battery life of the iPad 2.

UPDATE: Looks like images like these have been in the iBooks app for quite some time. Maybe Apple just isn’t bothering to remove them since they’ll have to add them right back in March?

UPDATE 2: It seems that a few of these Retina Display-sized iPad images are indeed new, scattered amongst the old files.

Thanks, Brendan!
