The new iPad name marks a shift in the Apple naming scheme, bringing the iPad in line with the Mac and iPod lines. Instead of numbering the iPad, Apple is going with a simplified name.

The new iPad will be available to purchase in store on March 16th, with pre-orders starting today.

The new iPad starts at $499, and goes up to $829 for the 64GB 4G LTE model.

One possible reason that Apple is going with the new naming scheme is to avoid confusion based on the Retina Display and the 4G LTE connectivity. An iPad 3, wouldn’t make sense to many shoppers who are looking for a 4G iPad.

One additional reason that Apple might be changing the name is to make room for different iPad models, like the rumored 8-inch iPad that might come later this year.
