The iPad 2 is set to be released next Wednesday, the 2nd March. Apple has sent out invitations to the event.

Kara Swisher, a reporter for the BoomTown section of the Wall Street Journal’s tech section is claiming:

“To those who care intensely about this kind of stuff which would be pretty much everyone in the tech ecosystem Apple will hold its much-anticipated event on March 2. The tech giant seems poised to unveil a new version of its hugely successful iPad, according to multiple sources.”

The Wall Street Journal is a very trusted and reliable source for things like this. There have been many rumours about the iPad 2 and even the iPad 3. Some rumours include 2 cameras, a SD card slot, thinner, lighter, etc. You’ve probably heard them all by now and they should be confirmed or denied by Apple next week.
