We had reported earlier today that UK carriers, T-Mobile and Orange have recently slashed prices of iPad 3G models, which indicated that iPad 2 launch was imminent.
It looks like we were right as folks at All Things Digital have just reported that Apple may be planning to hold a media event on March 2nd to unveil the second generation iPad.
Kara Swisher of All Things Digital reports:
To those who care intensely about this kind of stuff–which would be pretty much everyone in the tech ecosystem–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, according to multiple sources.
As in, iPad 2! Or, as BoomTown is now officially nicknaming it: iPad Too!
According to Swisher, the date is firm and is expected to take place in San Francisco at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts where Apple usually holds its media events.
According to several sources close to the situation, the Wednesday date in a little more than a week is firm and will take place in San Francisco, the scene of many such Apple events.
In that case, the venue is likely to be the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
It’s not clear when Apple will begin sending out its famous invites for the gathering, but I am guessing soon, in order to get the Apple faithful to the proper level of froth.
We can’t wait to find out the new features and improvements in iPad 2. How about you? What’s on you wish list?
