Apple Announces iPad Event for March 7

Confirming a seemingly endless stream of rumors, Jim Dalrymple reports:

As expected, Apple on Tuesday announced an event to show off the company’s next generation iPad. The invitation, sent to me by Apple, says the event will take place at 10:00 am on Wednesday, March 7, 2012 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.

Somewhat surprisingly, the press invitation seems to visually confirm the forthcoming iPad's oft-rumored Retina Display.

Jim will be reporting live from the event in San Francisco next Wednesday.
