We have previously seen images of the iPad 3’s reworked case design, however new images published on Tuesday give us a better look at the subtle differences we can expect from Apple’s next-generation tablet when it launches next month. The photographs, which were posted by MIC Gadget, reveal that the slate is between 1 and 1.5 millimeters thicker than the iPad 2, however it still fits in some iPad 2 cases according to the report. The iPad 3’s rear shell has a more gradual taper to the edges of the tablet, and it features a narrower bezel and larger camera lens compared to its predecessor. The iPad 3 is expected to be equipped with a 9.7-inch Retina Display, an 8-megapixel camera, embedded 4G LTE and a larger battery. Apple is reportedly planning to unveil the iPad 3 at a press conference on March 7th. Hit the break for additional iPad 3 images.
