iPad 3 will launch today with a press conference in San Francisco, and live coverage starts at 10 a.m. PST with bloggers, reporters and other hangers on broadcasting, streaming, liveblogging and livetweeting the event from every angle. How, when and where to watch online will depend on if you want a video feed, audio or liveblog - the most popular option. Tech blog Engadget is firing up a live video feed for before and after the event, and they'll be doing a rumor roundup starting at 6:30 a.m and a post event show starting at 1:30 p.m. The live show link is here, and the liveblog during the press conference is here. There is no official video feed of the event, but Apple will post the entire thing on their Web site as soon as the press conference ends. Prominent news organizations with liveblogs set up are The Wall Street Journal, SF Gate (home of San Francisco Chronicle online), Time's Techland blog, CBS' CNet and even the Vancouver Sun. For tech blogs, The Verge, Ars Technica, Slashgear, Wired.com's Gadget Lab, TechCrunch, Mashable and Gizmodo will all have live coverage from inside the press conference.
There are user streams set up on YouTube and UStream for those who want additional video sources. These are just fans talking about the various liveblogs, but they're perhaps a bit more interactive or social. Finally, there are some less heralded tech blogs out there, as you may have heard. Some are more readable than others, and some are just link bait, but if you want a look at the event through fresh eyes and from an outsider's perspective, check out liveblogs from Macgasm and MacTalk.
We're expecting a new iPad with an HD display, a full gigabyte of memory, new dual-core processor with improved graphics core and 4G LTE connectivity for $500 (16 GB Wi-Fi only). Additionlly, the iPad 2 should drop in price, and the Apple TV streaming device will be upgraded to 1080p streaming (and maybe even higher resolution than that). Tell us in the comments if you're going to follow along or if you'll just wait until the end to read the highlights of Apple's latest product launch.
