Apple has sent out invitations for a major media event on March 7 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. It is expected that tech giant will unveil the iPad 3 – the latest iteration of its groundbreaking tablet. This will be the first major Apple product release since the death of co-founder and company visionary, Steve Jobs.
Most experts expect the iPad 3 to have a higher-resolution screen, more internal memory and a faster processor – perhaps even a quad-core processor. There is debate if the iPad will support the faster LTE data networks now being deployed by Verizon and AT&T.
Pricing has not been confirmed. Apple has held firm on the pricing since the iPad was released two years ago, but don’t be surprised if there is a small increase.
In the wake of the expected announcement, the price of the iPad 2 is dropping – with Best Buy lowering the price by $50.
