iPad 2 launch is (practically) official, as Apple hands out iPad-themed invitations.
Earlier today, Apple began issuing invites to an iPad-related event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco – an event that is almost certainly designed to showcase the next generation of the best-selling iPad tablet. How do we know? Well, for one, the timing lines up – the first iPad was unveiled around this same time last year – and Apple is nothing if not consistent.
Meanwhile, the invitation syncs with an earlier report, from The Wall Street Journal, that Apple would very soon be taking the wraps of the iPad 2. The new iPad, Swisher reported, will be "thinner than its predecessor and feature an improved display."
