Apple iPad 3 prototypes everywhere

Can't wait for Apple's next iPad tablet computer? Neither can these designers and Apple fans

Apple's introduction of the iPad 2  tablet computer on March 2 generated lots of buzz and the product has been a winner, but for many Apple watchers the real excitement is in guessing what the next version will look like. Speculation over what the iPhone 5 will look like has been simultaneously hot.

If some of the latest rumors are to be believed, the guessing game over iPhone 5 and iPad 3 will end before 2011 is done and we'll be on to iPhone 6 and iPad 4 speculation before you know it.  Here's a look at what some creative minds envision the iPad 3 will be.
