Leaked photos of purported iPad 3 front glass and rear panels have already hit the scene and now, Apple.pro has published images showing how the next iPad is 0.81mm thicker than the iPad 2 using a digital caliper. The measurements suggest iPad 3 to be 9.50mm thick. It is worth noting that Apple.pro has proved to be a reliable source for Apple hardware rumors in the past.
Quoting from 9to5Mac:
Compare this to iPad 2′s depth of 8.8mm (the original iPad is 13.4mm), and the third-generation iPad could end up a hair thicker than its predecessor could. Or, if we are really nitpicking, it is 0.81mm thicker. It would seem there is some merit to that talk of a slightly thicker iPad 3 withmore tapering and narrower bezel.
iPad 3 is expected to be announced on March 7th alongside a new Apple TV with rumors of near-immediate availability based on sightings of iPad shipments landing at ports of multiple countries around the world.
