Do you think the new iPad should be called iPad 3? Or do you think it will be despite Apple not naming it that?

The main changes from a development standpoint is the resolution. However, like the retina display for iPhone, should just be the new images for the higher resolution. You can use the same @2x for high res images and if your app is a universal binary (for iPhone/iPod and iPad), you should put in the device modifier.

From: https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#documentation/2DDrawing/Conceptual/DrawingPrintingiOS/SupportingHiResScreens/SupportingHiResScreens.html

<ImageName>@2x<device_modifier>.<filename_extension>

The <ImageName> and <filename_extension> portions of each name specify the usual name and extension for the file. The <device_modifier> portion is optional and contains either the string ~ipad or ~iphone. You include one of these modifiers when you want to specify different versions of an image for iPad and iPhone. The inclusion of the @2x modifier for the high-resolution image is new and lets the system know that the image is the high-resolution variant of the standard image.
