Apple iPad 2 “Near Immediate” Release Next Week

Well now, we know that Apple is holding an event on the 2nd of March, which has been rumoured to unveil the next generation Apple iPad, but what about when will we see the Apple iPad 2 release to the public?

Well according to an article over on Redmond Pie by way of Apple Insider, it appears that potential customers could have their mitts on the next generation Apple iOS tablet just after the event.

Here’s what Apple Insider says the “people familiar with the matter” say…” Apple is preparing several of its operating segments to perform functions during the second half of next week that are representative of nothing short of a large scale, consumer-oriented product roll out (not just an announcement). And with official invitations to next Wednesday’s press briefing clearly indicating a focus on iPad, these people believe at least one version of the refreshed device will be in transit to retail outlets during that briefing.”

Apparently the “people familiar with the matter” have constantly delivered accurate info on Apple gear in the past, so if those people are correct, potential customers could well see the Apple iPad 2 release sometime next week.

Anyone going to be rushing in line to snap up the Apple iPad 2 right after that Apple event at the Yerba Buena Centre in Sans Francisco?

    Having been monitoring the iPad2 hype and rumours for the last 3 months, I beleive any new iPad release on the 2nd will only be an additional model, not a replacement and we will have to wait until later in the year, say September for a new model.
    Apple is still advertising the iPad on TV, etc and sales are still buoyant, maybe with the iPad 1A release we may see a price reduction in the current models, but we will have to wait another 6 months for a real iPad 2.
    Just my thoughts though- Dave B.
