The supposed launch of the iPad 3 is just a few weeks away now, so rumors are coming in faster than ever. In MICGadget‘s iPad rumor roundup, they included pictures of the iPad 3 shell, which gives some clues as to the design of the upcoming device.

Rumors so far have suggested that the iPad 3 will be slightly thicker than the iPad 2, and these pictures show a casing about 1.5mm thicker than the iPad 2. The edges, however, are much more tapered, so the device will likely feel much thinner. Also, although not shown in the pictures, MICGadget reports that the bezel is slightly thinner on the iPad 3, perhaps to make room for the double resolution display.
