iPad 3, iPhone 5 rumor time The normally reliable iLounge has posted a few tidbits of info from their "top source" on next year's iPad 3 and iPhone 5.
Additionally, the site has some info on updated MacBook Pros.

Reads the report:

(1) The third-generation iPad will become modestly thicker (0.7mm) in order to accommodate the twin light bar system needed for its higher-resolution display. It's currently on track for a March timeframe release, and according to our source could be publicly shown as early as January, depending on conditions.

(2) Our source says that the next-generation iPhone will not look like the teardrop-shaped version that was widely rumored for release in 2011. We've been told that the device will have a 4-inch display and will be 8mm longer than before, with a metal casing (probably aluminum). It is on track to be introduced in summer of 2012, and is still in the engineering phase, not early production. We suspect that poor battery life doomed the prior prototype version, and that this one is being built with LTE-ready battery drain in mind.

(3) Barring some huge and unexpected issue, 2012 will be the year when the MacBook Pro line gets its new design. Think thinner.

One thing is for sure. All their products could use a big refresh.

I was thinking it should be more powerful and cheaper...if you want a thin device that can't do most things, they have the iPad.
