iPad 3 to be Unveiled March 7th: Apple Sends Out Invites to ‘Special Event’

It’s been rumored that the iPad 3 would be unveiled at a special event on March 7th, and now it looks like the rumor has been confirmed. Apple sent out invitations to journalists to a special event on March 7th.

The invitation, which came with the tagline “we have something for you to see. And touch,” is most likely about the iPad 3. The event will take place on March 7th at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, so you can expect to hear some real news about the next generation of iPads later that night.

But until the March 7th event, tech experts will continue to speculate about the specs of the new iPad 3.

CNN reports that the iPad 3 will come with better battery, a retina display, a faster processor, a better camera, Siri, and will be able to run on 4G mobile networks.

The price of the iPad 3 is also up for grabs. CNET reports that the original iPad and the iPad 2 both started at $499 for the basic wi-fi only version. The iPad 3 could be slightly more expensive when it hits the market. Industry experts are also expecting Apple to slash the price of the iPad 2 and the original iPad when the iPad 3 hits the market.
