iPad 3 Unveil Set For Early March

Apple has scheduled an event in San Francisco to reveal the next-generation iPad. Will LTE be on board?

Apple has decided to schedule a big media event for the first week of March to show off the iPad 3, reports AllThingsD. Citing sources familiar with Apple's plans, AllThingsD says that the event will likely be held in San Francisco, at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, where Apple typically holds big product launches.

Timing for the retail availability of the actual device itself is expected to follow one to two weeks after the event.

As for details about the device itself, AllThingsD's John Paczkowski wrote, "sources say it will be pretty much what we've been led to expect by the innumerable reports leading up to its release: A device similar in form factor to the iPad 2, but running a much faster chip, sporting an improved graphics processing unit, and featuring a 2048x1536 Retina display."

Photos that purport to be components of the iPad 3 have been spied recently, and more or less confirm these details.
