Apple might open its Harrods store in March for the iPad 3 release

The luxury department store could be getting a hi-tech fruit stand as early as next month

Apple could open up its previously reported Harrods store as early as mid-March to coincide with the release of the iPad 3, according to 9to5mac's sources inside the department store.

The iPad 3 is already rumoured to be introduced to the world on March 7 and given Apple's history of selling products within a few weeks of their stage debuts, a mid-March opening for its Harrods store seems perfectly plausible.

We can think of worse places to launch the long-awaited iPad 3 (set to feature a retina display and A5X processor) than Harrods, but do join us in taking this all with a pinch of salt.
