Apple Event Announces New iPad: Will You Get Version 2?

Linda Sharps

Today Apple sent out one of their signature invitations to an upcoming media event, but instead of playing coy with mysterious graphics that would be pored over and dissected by tech blogs, they went straight to the point: new iPad.

The image shows a calendar icon with the date March 2, and the corner is peeling away to show an iPad screen in the background. Tagline: "Come see what 2011 will be the year of."

The event will be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts at 10:00 a.m. on March 2—but what exactly will they be announcing?

While detailed specs of the iPad 2 are one of Apple's tightly guarded secrets, there are lots of guesses about what's to come. Rumors have been swirling for months that the device will include a front-facing camera with FaceTime video support and be thinner than its predecessor. A more robust dual-core processor and better display are also decent bets.

File this one under unlikely but we're hoping for it anyway: a stage appearance by Apple CEO Steve Jobs.

What would they have to announce about the iPad 2 to get you to buy one?
