This is interesting. MacRumors reports that an iOS developer found a new, unknown iPad device showing up in his app analytics. Though that usually means the next version of the iPad, the unknown iPad actually had the same footprint as the current iPad 3 — but with the faster processor of the iPhone 5. Hmm...


Apple is now selling refurbished current-generation iPads for as little as $488 (Australian) for the 16GB Wi-Fi version. If you want more storage or 3G, you'll have to pay a little more, but that's $50 off the price of a new one right there.


It's no great secret or news that you can get a knockoff version of just about anything in China with just a little bit of haggling involved. But I couldn't pass up the opportunity to visit one of Shanghai's technology markets when I was there last week — and in doing so, come face to face with the "iPad 3".


Somehow, through the smog of doubt and tech cynicism, the new iPad managed not to disappoint — likely owing to a retina display that's more glorious than Athena's cleavage. But! No Siri! Apple you screwed us again! Actually, no: be glad it's missing.
