iPad 2 Announcement Scheduled For March 2nd

Apple is hosting a media event next week to show off the next-generation of its iPad, as it prepares to take on new rivals in the fast-growing tablet market. Apple, which sent an invitation to reporters on Wednesday via email, will host the 2 March gathering at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, the same venue where Apple unveiled the original iPad in January 2010

An obvious strategic play on the part of Apple to get would be buyers of Motorola’s Xoom (launching today) to hold off on the purchase  until they get a temperature of what may be on the way.  That said, analysts expect the earliest availability date for the iPad2 won’t be until June of 2011.

Stay tuned for coverage surrounding the announcement.
