Report: iPad 2 To Be Unveiled At Media Event Next Wednesday



That secret Apple Store retail meeting on Sunday we reported this morning? It looks like our instinct was right, as Kara Swisher at All Things D is now reporting that Apple will be holding a special media event on March 2nd to unveil the second-generation iPad.

Citing multiple sources, All Things D says that the date is firm, and that it will take place in San Francisco… likely at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. If true, that means we should see invitations sent out to the press today or tomorrow.

The iPad 2 is likely to ship in late March or early April, and will feature a thinner design, better sound, and FaceTime capabilities, as well as a faster dual-core A5 CPU and double ram. It’s also rumored to run on both Verizon and AT&T.
