We've seen evidence of a faster iPad 3 using the Apple A6 processor before and now 9to5Mac is reporting that Apple will announce a "refreshed version" of the full sized, 9.7-inch iPad with Retina Display at next week's event. It looks like we might be getting a new updated iPad sooner than we thought.
This is interesting. MacRumors reports that an iOS developer found a new, unknown iPad device showing up in his app analytics.

After promising to purge any mention of the 4G capabilities of the new iPad from its Australian marketing, it looks like Apple has come through.
