CNET is reporting that the next iPad will not be named the iPad 3, but will instead be named the iPad HD. While this is a minor change, it is important to note because it signifies that Apple is looking at the iPad like it looks at the MacBook line, which exists without version numbers. I was hoping for an iPad Pro, with an iPad 2 as the entry level device, so that Apple’s product lines would be consistent. However, with this information, it is reasonable to suppose that later this year Apple will re-release the MacBook Pro as the MacBook HD, with the MacBook Air as the entry level device.
