Apple Announces iPad 3 Event For March 7th In San Francisco

It’s here! The long awaited iPad 3 Event has finally been announced. Apple just sent out invites to a special event that will take place at 10:00am on Wednesday, March 7th, 2012 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. The tagline on the event invite reads “We have something you really have to see. And touch.” Apple is expected to announce the iPad 3 that will have a better processor, improved graphics, and a new Retina Display.

Also rumored to be unveiled at the event is a new Apple TV that might be 1080p capable. CNBC tweeted earlier this morning that the iPad 3 will have a quad-core processor, but they also claimed the event will take place in New York City (which was proven false minutes later), so it’s doubtful that their information is accurate.

One curious thing about the announcement of the event is that it invites were sent out as Google’s Eric Schmidt took the stage for his keynote at Mobile World Conference. Coincidence? Or was Apple distracting the world while Android was trying to gain the spotlight?
