Rumor: iPad 3 casings emerge, looks like the real deal

With rumors swirling that the iPad 3 is just going to be a specification bump, along with a Retina display, and some other under-the-hood upgrades, it sounds an awful lot like the next generation iPad is going to look almost identical to the iPad 2. All Things D reported today that we shouldn’t expect much of a change in the form factor of the iPad.

RepairLabs has published images of the inside rear shell of what is claimed to be the upcoming iPad 3. It looks like the logic board may be getting streamlined to free up some space. MacRumors is speculating that it could be room for some extra battery juice.

This brings us to new leaks today that actually show the backside of the alleged iPad 3. As you can see from the attached image below, the iPad 3 is pretty much going to look exactly like the iPad 2. Cult of Mac has a giant gallery of parts that are apparently from the upcoming iPad.

Looks a lot like the current iPad, doesn’t it. That being said, a Retina display, more power under the hood, and extra battery life are all reason enough for me to sell my current iPad 2, and buy a new one. So, who’s in the market for an iPad 2?
