According to a report from Wall Street Journal’s AllThingsD, the next generation iPad will be announced on March 2nd, at a special event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.
As Steve Jobs is on a medical leave of absence, chances are that the event will be hosted by Tim Cook and/or Phil Schiller. Although, we know that Jobs is in a better condition now, it’s unlikely that he would be at the event.
“According to several sources close to the situation, the Wednesday date in a little more than a week is firm and will take place in San Francisco, the scene of many such Apple events. In that case, the venue is likely to be the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. It’s not clear when Apple will begin sending out its famous invites for the gathering, but I am guessing soon, in order to get the Apple faithful to the proper level of froth.”, said Kara Swisher of AllThingsD.
