AllThingsD reports on information from anonymous sources who claim that the next Apple event will happen the first week in March, and will debut the next iPad. This one is supposed to do for the iPad’s large screen what the iPhone and iPod Touch 4 did for their small screen: a faster processor and double-resolution (in this case 2048×1536) Retina Display.

If 2011 was the year of the iPad 2, will 2012 be the year of the iPad 3? Said a source familiar with the device: “What do you think?”

Assuming it really does come with a Retina-resolution screen, that means the iPad will finally be able to show high-definition video in its native resolution, and it also means e-books should look absolutely incredible. Amazon’s Kindle Fire had just better watch its back!
