A report has come from AllThingsD, which as an accurate track record when it comes to Apple’s media events, that Apple will hold an event revealing the iPad 3.
Sources say the company has chosen the first week in March to debut the successor to the iPad 2, and will do so at one of its trademark special events. The event will be held in San Francisco, presumably at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Apple’s preferred location for big announcements like these. No word yet on a street date for the iPad 3 (assuming that’s what it’s called), though my guess is retail availability will follow roughly the same schedule as that of the iPad 2: Available for purchase a week or so after the event.
Keep in mind that Apple introduced the iPad 2 on March 2 last year with a media event with orders launching on March 11.
