Apple to Announce iPad 2 on March 2nd

All Things Digital is reporting that Apple has set up a media event for March 2nd which is expected to introduce the next-generation iPad. The report states â??To those who intensely cares about this kind of stuff â?? which would be pretty much everyone in the tech ecosystem â?? Apple will hold its much-anticipated event on March 2, where the tech giant seems poised to unveil a new version of its hugely successful iPad.â??

There is no word on when Apple will start sending out their famous media invites either. Of course, this pretty much disputes a rumor that surfaced yesterday claiming that the second-generation iPad would not launch until June. Of course, we will have coverage of the event regardless what it entails.
