Rumors, tidbits and speculation continue to surface related to the iPad 3, Apple’s unannounced successor to the iPad 2.

Current iPad 2 suppliers, carriers Verizon Wireless and AT&T, are on tap to offer a 4G LTE version of the iPad, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal. Earlier reports suggest Apple is gearing up to unveil the new device March 7 in San Francisco. 

Sprint Nextel also now offers the iPad in the U.S. but the Journal said it couldn’t confirm whether other carriers, specifically Sprint Nextel and T-Mobile, will offer a higher speed, 4G version of the device in the U.S. Sprint Nextel currently offers the iPhone, but not the iPad 2. 

Apple hasn’t commented on anything related to a new iPad release which is consistent with its policy of not releasing any information ahead of time on products it hasn’t formally unveiled. 

The latest iPad-related rumors have Cupertino also working on an 8-inch display version of the hot-selling iPad, which would be in addition to a new iPad 3 at the same 9.7-inch size as the current model.
