March 7 has finally arrived, and with it comes Apple’s media event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. After teasing with last week’s “We have something you really have to see. And touch” invitations to the press, the fateful day has arrived with CEO Tim Cook taking the stage.
Question: What’s more exciting than an Apple media event announcing a new product? Answer: The actual announcement that finally confirms said event after weeks (or even months) of rumors and speculation. For the next-generation iPad, it appears that day has arrived.
It’s a sadly familiar tale: An Apple engineer walks into a bar and leaves his iPhone prototype behind, where it’s scooped up by persons unknown. That sounds familiar to anyone who survived last year’s lost iPhone 4 scandal, but history has repeated itself this year in the very same way.
When you’ve got 5,200 developers attending your latest conference and you announce the availability of beta software for them to download and start playing with immediately, how do you manage the Wi-Fi network so there won’t be issues? Somehow, Apple has managed it with this year’s WWDC.
Let’s see, where’s that WWDC 2011 checklist? Oh, here it is. Apple issues press release confirming Steve Jobs keynote. Check! Secret “iCloud” plans outed. Check! And, Apple logos start going up at Moscone West. Check!
The invitations have been sent, the banners are flying at Yerba Buena and all that remains now is to see what Apple has on deck for us come Wednesday, March 2 at a special media event that will is expected to reveal the first sequel to the company’s market-leading iPad.
Although Apple has yet to send invitations, a new report claims that the iPad 2 will be officially announced at a media event held in San Francisco on Wednesday, March 2, just a bit more than a week away.
