The iPad 3 Cometh: Apple Announces Special Event for March 7th

Finally, the next iPad has a launch date! In an email from Apple today, the press was invited to the familiar Yuerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Franciso, CA. The magic begins next Wednesday, March 7 at 10am , and according to the invitation, Apple has something that we all “really have to see,” not to mention “touch”.

Fueled by record-breaking profits and sales consistently strong enough to threaten the PC industry, the next iPad has been a hotly speculated gadget for months. Rumors kicked off early last year  and have entertained tweaks to the device ranging from a clearer 2048 x 1536 resolution and a faster quad-core CPU to Siri integration and even two new iPads (one 8-inch and another traditional 9.7-inch flavor, or maybe one high-end version and a lower-priced variation). Recently, several publications reported that production of a new iPad kicked off in China and that the company would be making an announcement on, you guessed it, March 7. Maybe there’s some truth in every rumor.

From the invitation’s text, the word “something” puts the kibosh on expectations of two new devices, but that doesn’t mean Apple couldn’t surprise the world with a smaller version of it’s prize game-changer. One rumor we’re excited to hear confirmed: support for 4G data networks from Verizon and AT&T. Grab a seat at the event with us next Wednesday at 1pm EST to learn more.

    hope that it has a lot of changes from the ipad 2. seeing its apple though that is doubtful, im going to say it has an hd retina display and siri. it might have a better processor and some other parts but i doubt that they will really change how it runs at all. id love to see os changes but that will never happen. oh and it will for sure look the same. well here is to hoping it is awesome by standards other than apple and ifans, because it is what i will be getting through my school XD
