iPad 3 launch: as it happened

Our live blog of the new iPad launch

New iPad review

The official invite to Apple's iPad launch read: "We have something you really have to see. And touch." It then showed a picture of a hand, touching an iPad. Speculation was rife about the iPad launch, as you might expect. There were strong rumours that rather than the 'iPad 3' the third generation of Apple's tablet will be called the 'iPad HD', but in fact it is simply known as 'iPad'. It's believed that the 9.7in device that is the subject of this iPad launch may be only a precurser to a 7in iPad, due to launch later in the year.

PC Advisor will, of course, bring you all the latest details of Apple's launch today, as well as first-look reviews, photos and analysis. And we'll have an iPad review live here as soon as we can write it.

But for the action as it happened, simply watch the box below:
