  • Apple Sends Out Invites to March 2nd iPad 2 Unveiling


    Following Tuesday's unconfirmed reports of a possible March 2nd Apple media event, on Wednesday Apple began sending out invites to the event scheduled for 10:00 am at Apple's beloved stomping grounds of the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, California. As clearly indicated by the graphic art emblazoned on the invitation, the March 2nd event will yield our first official look at the second generation iPad.

    Now just days away from the big reveal, the blogosphere is buzzing with rampant speculation about new features inbound to the refreshed Apple tablet. The most obvious and widely anticipated updates include a front-facing camera for FaceTime video chats, a slimmer body, and an improved display. Of course, just because we're going to get our first look at the iPad 2 next week doesn't mean we'll be able to get our hands on it just as quickly. Rumors of potential production setbacks - while denied by some - remain persistent. Regardless, Apple will all but certainly let us know what timetables we're looking at as of March 2nd.

      Well?? Maybe not,, apple always add a little new feature, and makes us buy it,, then does it all again next year,, and says "this changes, everything again,,,again,,,"

      I do with my wife when I am away from home so I can see and chat with her and my 2 year old daughter. When you are gone from home 2 or more months at a time it is nice to actually see them and interact with your kids. Helps to keep you apart of them. I am looking forward to having this on the iPad versus my iphone 4. The 4 does great but I would love to have a larger screen.

      I have wanted to get an iPad for awhile now but have been holding off to get the iPad 2 version.

      K so I returned the iPad for a $650 refund store credit (was bought with a gift card) Lets hope this iPad comes out in the next few weeks.
