    The Loop reports that Apple has officially issued invitations to a media event scheduled for next Wednesday, March 2nd, with the graphics suggesting that Apple will indeed introduce the next-generation iPad at the event. The invitation comes with the tagline "Come see what 2011 will be the year of."
    Claims of the March 2nd media event surfaced just yesterday, putting the quash on recent rumors that the device's debut may be delayed until June.

    Fantastic!
    And the huge 2 suggests that it is going to be the iPad 2! :)

    I'm guessing a late March or early April release date.

    Wonder who's going to be the host of the conference? My guess is Phil.

    It will be the year of disappointment if they don't deliver the 2X resolution screen.

    For some reason, I read this as "Go go gadget rumor mill!"

    I'm weird.

    So, a fairly obvious hint that this is the new iPad in the picture. And we also notice the only icon that is visible is the Maps icon. Something new with maps? Apple rolling out their own service?

    CANNOT WAIT!!! :apple:

    I kinda hope international preorders go up a little later than USA ones purely so i've got a better chance of getting one on day one. Won't have the money to preorder on March 2nd and can't wait in line on the morning ;(

    iPad in the background, with a huge number 2 AND using the iPhone 4 Retina Display default background.

    Coincidence? Or just wishful thinking?

    Doubt it....

    If they don't launch internationally it will simply kill and stagnate current iPad sales in those countries excluded from launch window.

    Apple might be happy to do that. Retailers would not.

    Thank you, black cloud of doom in every thread. But the higher resolution screen is coming, maybe not in this version, but probably before the end of the year. And the iPads will sell in tremendous number in either case.

    Really hoping they launch the new imacs soon ... I am really hoping that the next imac will support full hd video input so that you can use something like kanex xd and play your xbox in 1080p not 720p .. that'd be awesome.

    What if this means no revamped Macbook Pro until after the event? Wouldn't that seem like strange timing to release the new Macbook Pros on Thursday and then a week later host an event?
