Apple will reportedly hold iPad 2 event on March 2

Apple iPadApple is reportedly set to hold a media event to unveil its next-generation iPad on Wednesday, March 2, in San Francisco, Calif.

Citing multiple sources, Kara Swisher of All Things D revealed the date on Tuesday. Though a venue has not been named, it is expected to be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, where previous Apple media events have been held.

Given that the event is a little over a week away, Apple is expected to send out invitations to the event soon. Other details on the event, including potential details on the rumored "iPad 2," were not given.

The first-generation iPad was announced in late January of 2010, ahead of a U.S.-only launch of the Wi-Fi model in early April. The 3G model and international launches came out over the following weeks and months, on its way to sales of 15 million units in the calendar year.

The iPad 2 is widely expected to be thinner and lighter with a faster processor, more RAM, and a camera for FaceTime video chat. It is also expected to have advanced graphics capabilities to allow playback of high-definition video and superior 3D graphics.

As onlookers await the iPad 2, speculation has already begun that Apple could unveil a different version of the iPad, perhaps with more features, as early as this September. The release of a so-called iPad 3 would align the device with the annual announcement of new iPods just before the holiday buying season.

Earlier Tuesday, AppleInsider exclusively reported that Apple has scheduled a "all hands" meeting for its retail employees in the coming days. Employees were asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement, and those who do not sign cannot partake in the meetings, expected to be held at individual stores on Sunday.
