One person familiar with the matter said recent speculation about a delay until June was “simply not true” as Apple is planning a launch in the same seasonal schedule as the first iPad, which went on sale in April 2010.
For everyone who has been following the iPad 2 hardware, software, and release date rumors, a bombshell has just been dropped.
Apple has reportedly scheduled an iPad 2 media event for March 2, 2011.
As the rumors have pointed out over the last several months, the iPad 2 is expected to be thinner, feature a better display, a faster processor, have larger storage, and feature front and back facing cameras.
According to sources close to the media event situation, the March 2 event is firm and will be held in San Francisco at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
At this time, it is unclear when Apple will be sending out invites, but it will probably be late this week or early next week.
