    If the rumour is the 7th why the delay? Surely next week we should be seeing the preview banners like the iPhone launch?

    They typically send out invitations exactly one week in advance. If the announcement is March 7th, expect to see invitations on March 2nd. edit: February 29th

    Sorry, can't do math....

    They generally send out the invites a week before the event, so assuming that the announcement is the 7th and they keep their usual patterns expect the invites to be sent out (and then start being reported on) some time on Wednesday.

    Edit:
    I'd guess 29th (Wednesday) rather than 2nd (Friday).

    No

    Jim Dalrymple said it is happening, on that day with that subject. Take it to the bank, we'll see the invitations in the next couple.

    My reliable resource is John Gruber who has curiously said nothing iPad related for a long time. I think he either knows too much or too little to chime in.

    I haven't heard of that Jim Dalrymple but maybe I'll start checking The Loop if he's good. His site format looks like Daring Fireball which I enjoy.

    You think there's a risk it won't be covered?

    Typical M.O. for Apple is to announce a week ahead of the event. So today or tomorrow.

    Apple never announces a special press conference more than 7 days ahead. So today, or tomorrow.

    Pretty sure even Gruber refers to Dalrymple as a high level source on this sort of thing.

    Shame the event is in Cupertino and we have to go by PST.

    it is possible that rumors we heard so far are well..rumors and we've been setting ourselves for a huge disappointment. But again, it is that time of the year when apple refreshes their iPad, and supposebly we had some 'reliable' sources telling us a March 7th release.

    Let's just wait to see if invites go out soon. *fingers crossed*

    Also I might add, this whole lawsuit from proview might be delaying the release as well.

    Delaying implies something is overdue.

    How is there a "delay" in terms of an anticipated March 7th event given that Apple in the past doesn't send out invites more than a week in advance?

    Just sayin... :D

    Point taken though - Proview is a wildcard.

    I said in another thread I feel they will announce it tomorrow. Microsoft are having a Windows 8 event tomorrow, so iPad 3 event invites will definitely take the spotlight off Microsoft...let's see
