What would the Consumers Electronics Show be without Apple rumors overshadowing most of the announcements? iLounge‘s Jeremy Horwitz has taken to Twitter to break down some of the leaked iPad 3 information he’s hearing. First off, it’s being reported that in addition to the rear camera on the iPad 3 being on par with the iPhone 4 or even iPhone 4S camera, the front-facing camera will support HD FaceTime video chats. Because of the Retina Display and new components, Horwitz reiterates an earlier report that parts of the iPad 3 will be around 1mm thicker to accommodate the new components. Finally, the iPad 3 should launch starting at $499 around March, and it will would push the iPad 2 down to $399, possibly even $299 if Apple decides to sell an 8GB unit.
