Apple Announces iPad Event for March 7

Written by

As predicted, Apple today sent invitations to the press for its iPad event, to be held on March 7 at 10am PST in San Francisco.

 

 

Specs are still unannounced, but the new iPad is widely expected to have a faster processor, a more powerful graphics processor, and a Retina display to match the iPhone 4S’ pixel density and clarity.

My predictions, in addition to the above:

 

  • Same form factor as iPad 2
  • No 4G connectivity, just 3G, because of persistent battery life issues (hope I’m proven wrong on this, of course)
  • Same pricing as the existing line-up
  • An introduction of Microsoft Office for iPad
  • Full GPS capability
  • Improved camera optics
