CNet claims that the next gen iPad that is due to be announced on Wednesday will be named “iPad HD”.
A developer who has previously provided reliable information with respect to things Apple and otherwise tells us the next iPad uses the HD moniker instead of going with “iPad 3.”
Till now the next generation iPad has been called “iPad 3″ in most reports as a natural successor to the iPad 2, just a view case-makers started referencing the new device as the “iPad HD”.
The name was first predicted in a rumor from July, 2011. In that report by This Is My Next (now TheVerge), the author claimed the “iPad HD” would be a high-end device aimed more at professionals. The most recent rumors, however, have suggested the new device will arrive at the same price points as the current iPad 2.
