Apple (s aapl) sent out invitations for its next official event Wednesday morning. The event will take place Wednesday, March 2 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts at 10 a.m. PST, and the graphic accompanying the invitation suggests the iPad 2 will indeed be unveiled at the event.
Yesterday, AllThingsD reported that its sources had indicated an event would indeed be taking place March 2, but Apple declined to make any official comment at the time. The next iPad is expected to introduce FaceTime support with at least one camera (front-facing), and a thinner, sleeker design. Many other rumors about what the update could bring to the platform abound, including improved display quality and alternate case materials.
In addition to the image of a calendar icon peeling at one corner to reveal an iPad, the invitation also includes the slogan “Come see what 2011 will be the year of.” That’s clearly a play on the assertion by many in the tech industry that 2011 was indeed the year of the iPad.
We’ll have coverage of the event and any product announcements right here next Wednesday, so stay tuned.
