Purported photos of iPad 3 posted

All the evidence continues to suggest that Apple will announce the iPad 3 on March 7. And now a Chinese website has posted photos of what they say is the forthcoming iPad. The photos suggest that the edges will be more beveled than the iPad 2. But more importantly, they suggest that the camera will be 8 megapixels. You can read more on AppleInsider. Also, in a different post, AppleInsider shows a photo of the innards, with the processor labeled A5X. This suggests that the processor will be an upgrade to the A5 in the current iPad 2, but may not be the quad-core processor that people were hoping for.
