We are now sure about the iPad 2 launch on Wednesday, March 2, at the Yerba Buena Center for Arts Theater in San Francisco at 10 AM PT. The invites for the iPad 2 event was sent out earlier today and few of the tech & gadget blogs will be live blogging from the event.
Apple fans have a huge expectations with iPad 2, specially after seeing some stiff competition from tablets like Motorola Xoom, HP Touchbook and BlackBerry Playbook. iPad 2 is expected to have thinner display, front facing camera, Facetime video chat and gyroscope.
Watch iPad 2 Event Live Streaming Online
Historically Apple has deliberately avoided live streaming their product launches on the web. But they managed to shock all the web enthusiasts by live streaming their iPod music event in September 2010 and repeated that in October 2010 too. So, we can expect them to live stream iPad 2 event as well.
The exact link will be updated as and when it becomes available on March 2. Note that Apple restricts the live stream to those using a Mac running Safari on Mac OS X version 10.6 Snow Leopard, an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 3.0 or higher, or an iPad!
Update: Apple doesn’t seem to be live streaming the iPad 2 event this time. Sad news really.
