Samsung tilts at the iPad 3 with scheduled product launch

Samsung will officially unveil a range of new TVs, home-cinema products and new cameras the day before Apple is expected to announce the iPad 3.

After months of court wrangles with Apple, Samsung still can't resist poking the bear by launching its 2012 range on March 6, the day before Apple's much-rumored iPad 3 announcement.

Samsung will officially launch its range of 2012 televisions at an event in New York and is expected provide more details on one of the most impressive entrants at this year's CES, the 55-inch "Super OLED" TV . (Update: Samsung tells us the OLED TV won't be announced at that event; availability is still said to be the second half of 2012.)

The company will also outline its take on gesture control and the latest Smart TV apps.

Other products on display at the March event will be home cinema and the company's newest camera range.

Though an Apple iPad 3 is still theoretical, the latest rumors suggest a new device will be announced on an as-yet-unconfirmed date of March 7.

Last week, a German court cleared the Samsung Galaxy Tab for sale in the country after Apple filed an injunction last year preventing the 10-inch tablet from entering the nation's borders.
