Apple will reportedly= hold iPad 2 event on March 2

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 
Apple is reportedly set to hold a media event to unveil its next-generation iPad on Wednesday, March 2, in San Francisco, Calif.

Citing multiple sources, Kara Swisher of All Things D revealed the date on Tuesday. Though a venue has not been named, it is expected to be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, where previous Apple media events have been held.

Given that the event is a little over a week away, Apple is expected to send out invitations to the event soon. Other details on the event, including potential details on the rumored "iPad 2," were not given.

The first-generation iPad was announced in late January of 2010, ahead of a U.S.-only launch of the Wi-Fi model in early April. The 3G model and international launches came out over the following weeks and months, on its way to sales of 15 million units in the calendar year.

The iPad 2 is widely expected to be thinner and lighter with a faster processor, more RAM, and a camera for FaceTime video chat. It is also expected to have advanced graphics capabilities to allow playback of high-definition video and superior 3D graphics.

As onlookers await the iPad 2, speculation has already begun that Apple could unveil a different version of the iPad, perhaps with more features, as early as this September. The release of a so-called iPad 3 would align the device with the annual announcement of new iPods just before the holiday buying season.

Earlier Tuesday, AppleInsider exclusively reported that Apple has scheduled a "all hands" meeting for its retail employees in the coming days. Employees were asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement, and those who do not sign cannot partake in the meetings, expected to be held at individual stores on Sunday.

Clearly the shorts are out en masse, because AAPL has dropped quite a bit in the past week or two. A few new pictures of Jobs in the papers don't explain the wild drops in the stock.

The entire market is getting hammered. It's not specific to Apple. All I see is another opportunity to buy AAPL.

If this is true then the MacBook's revision will not be on Thursday. At least I think that. Apple does not announce nor launch multiple products at a close time. So its either the Macs or iPad in end of February to beginning March.

To be honest I can't afford either at the moment but if I had to choose which I'd go for iPad 2!

Meh, nobody cares. Who wants to sit around with a pad that can only view some web pages and run fart apps.
Now the Playbook... There is an exciting product launch. Can view ALL web pages, will have magazine subscriptions (unlike the iPad). Will have awesome apps like skype and Netflix (unlike the iPad)... Will be able to tether and create hot spots (unlike the iPad)... Think outside the box, do whatever whenever and let your wildest dreams come true.

Probably why Apple's stock is sinking like a stone right now.

Ha - troll post of the week.

Seriously thou - how long is Apple going to play castle? They are losing momentum and the PR war. Makes you wonder who will take the next big bite out of their logo?

I would believe Kara more than I would those stupid analysts. Can't see them releasing MBPs this Thursday then holding a media event for the iPad next week. That's very un-apple like. More likely they would combine the two next week. I wish they would announce all their new products at media events, just makes it that little bit more exciting.
post #9 of 57
If they don't end up updating the MacBook/Pro line, that would be totally ridiculous. But 2 product launches in such close succession seems very uncharacteristic of Apple. They need to update their notebook line + iMac line very soon, the current models have been on the market too long.

Seeing as how the online store only has shipping delays for the MBP line, I think this announcement may be for the MBP's and not the iPad.

No way to know for sure until March 2, which btw is a Wed. and thus also not a normal day for AAPL product launches...

I think the Playbook is basically DOA.

The HP Touchpad is rather likely too.

Just the way it is.

You gave me a good laugh today, being that you made up a lot of your facts about the iPad. I think you might have been describing an ereader.. The iPad DOES run Netflix, DOES run
Skype, will tether with OS4.3, and will have video chatting. My favorite moment is that you said iPad should think "outside the box". Hmm.. I'm pretty sure Apple revolutionized the tablet market and Playbook has imitated a lot of features of the iPad.
And Apple's stock is sinking? Hmm.. Sure they have dropped some, but they usually do seasonally before their product launch months.. (April, June, and September) and now that I think about it iPhone is out on Verizon and is taking many of blackberry's customers.
At the end of the day I think most can agree with me, Apple > Blackberry
Why don't you go "troll" on BlackberryInsider instead of making stuff up about products you don't know about.

Honestly I think we'll see iPad 2 as the primary focus and the one more thing as the MBP refresh.

That or the other way around, but either way they'll do both on the 2nd. Everyone thought "Oh Steve's birthday they have to be releasing it then" but he prob won't be there so it was a BS date.
post #17 of 57
I think it is very obvious that these rumors of iPad 2 delays and iPad 3 coming out late this summer or fall are made up by parties connected too or have interests with Apples competition. Think about it, if you dont even have a tablet out yet, and it is not going to be released until this summer (HP & RIM); you want potential customers waiting until this summer to make a decision about buying a new tablet, instead of this spring when the iPad 2 comes out. So you float the idea that an iPad 3 is coming out late this summer. Making some people wait for iPad3.
Also I dont think it is a coincidence that these rumors of iPad 2 and iPhone delays come out the same week that Motorolas Xoom is released.

Right! I thought I was reading satire for most of his post until I realized (I guess) that he was serious.

Two Points -

1) The Playbook must be tethered just to get Email, Contacts, Calendar! This is IMO a stupid design feature.

2) If RIM cannot even make one decent Handset how can they think of making a competitive tablet?

Living in Vancouver is not the problem for Rain ... I'm also from Vancouver and will proudly admit to being An Apple "fanboy". The problem with Rain is the same as it is with all the other trolls .... very low self esteem. Why else the need to visit "someone else's house" and proceed to complain about everything they see? .... unless of course, it's his "job" .... but, in his case at least, I don't think anyone is desperate enough to hire someone with a "skill set" so limited.

I'm thinking the Ipad 3 release in September is possibly the 6/7 inch Ipad Touch that was rumored earlier.
post #23 of 57
It's worth pointing out that John Gruber, who originated the two iPad releases this year rumour, said (on Twitter) that the iPad in September wouldn't be the iPad 3. It'd be something that is sold alongside the iPad we're (supposedly) getting next month. He also said the date was pure speculation but hinted that a Retina Display was not. I think what Gruber's (generally reliable) sources have told him is that (a) the iPad 2 is coming next month but isn't going to have a Retina Display but that (b) the Retina Display is real. The September "iPad HD" rumour was just him speculating on how those two facts can be reconciled.
post #24 of 57
Frankly, I think Apple should call it "iPad" and then in fine print "(2nd Generation)" much in the same way the iPods are called iPods and if needed, a generation indicator. If Apple was really cool, they would not give it a name at all and just represent it with a tablet symbol, or in spoken form, "the magic tablet formerly known as iPad."

Nobody wants/expects Apple to end up with any real threat of an anti-trust...they're too important to the industry(s) they mix in doing all the real ergonomics design and user interface R&D. The HPs and Motorolas and Dells of the world NEED them to do the advance work, so they can swoop in and 2nd phase commodify for Android/Windows markets. Same goes for the content providers--they decry their abusing about paying Apple royalties etc and lament their impotence in the face of iTunes' supremacy in digital distribution, but they KNOW that Apple has continually delivered them out of last century and has been correct in user habits and wants when it comes to digital content consumption. They don't have the intuition to make correct calls ahead of an Apple on redesigning their vertical markets, so they need them to go first and then they play catch up and set up their own proprietary sites.

In short, all the bitching and moaning by the other industry players is at best a mere pressure release valve as they are forced to catch up, and at worst a farcical facade for their actual lamphrey-style symbiosis w/ Apple as the shark that does most of the progressive swimming.

Very Low Self Esteem. Self-appointed psychoanalyst? Just ignore the troll and it will go away.

FWIW, I've had my iPad for a few months now and beginning to discover its limitations. Web Browsing IS, unfortunately, one of them. I don't care for flash, so I won't go there, but the inability to retain pages in memory drives me nuts. Why can't they just be swapped out and back in again? The kernel has virtual memory, right? It's the most advanced Operating System out there (I beg to differ but that's not the point).

There is a game pad being tested that is around 5 or 6 inch and may be 3DS. Stop linking it to ipod or ipad its neither of them, its a gaming device build specifically for games. It may have build-in physical game controllers that slide from behind the screen. They could call it iPlay

I got the feeling the rumours for the ipad 3 in fall is leaks of the gaming pad that is confused for a new ipad model

Gaming is coming to AppleTV too, so his an AppleTv app store. A game controller for the AppleTV is also in comming
imo all those things are for September at the earliest.

In 2012, once the AppleTV has enough apps and games, Apple is going to start on is TV set and merge AppleTV into a TV set.

i think it's pretty likely that apple will release the new MBPs on Thursday, and then give us a nice breakdown on them before they introduce the ipad 2 next Wednesday. now on to one of my favorite activities, predicting upcoming apple products! and usually not being right

March 2
iPad2 (i think iOS 5 will big enough to obfuscate need for dual cores and other bullet point specs)
-faster single core processor, improved graphics
-500mb RAM
-dual cameras
-little bit thinner, lighter, aluminum
-little bit better battery
-NFC

September 2011
iPad Pro
-new, dark alloy body, thinner, lighter
-dual core processor, improved battery, cameras, and 1GB of RAM
-no retina

March 2012
iPad 3
-catch up to iPad Pro with everything, but retain traditional aluminum, no retina display
iPad Pro
-retina display

as for AAPL today:
i haven't read Andy Zaky's post yet, but is pretty obvious that apple's slide today was another blatant market manipulation so the powers that be can screw more small investors out of their money. this is getting into criminal territory IMO and should be investigated. the "stories" we saw today were blatant, quickly refuted lies. not to mention the publishing of a video today of steve wobbling a bit. it's pathetic that people stoop so low for easy money.

Someone had to step in for melgross, or this forum would be nothing more then a bunch of parasites agreeing that Apple is perfect, everything they do is perfect, they are incapable of not being perfect, all competition is flawed, all competition will be DOA, all competition is run by morons. - then have the gull to call out anyone who disagrees a 'troll'.

Sorry, but someone has to interrupt the 'feel good affirmation' of the shareholders standing around congratulating each other like they had something to do with Apple's success - and inject a tiny bit of common sense into the cult... or we would have no fun at all.

If anything, I'm saving the forum from being undeniably called the dreaded F.B. term. In fact, I might even be considered a hero for my clever and well spoken insight.

Well, I read somewhere on this site that some people don't believe these"rumors" even if New York Times reports it and they won't believe anything until The Wall Street Journal reports it.

Well naysayers here is your wish:

Exclusive: Apple iPad 2 Event Set for March 2

To those who care intensely about this kind of stuffwhich would be pretty much everyone in the tech ecosystemApple will hold its much-anticipated event on March 2, where the tech giant seems poised to unveil a new version of its hugely successful iPad, according to multiple sources.

As in, iPad 2! Or, as BoomTown is now officially nicknaming it: iPad Too!

Analysts expect the iPad 2 to be thinner than its predecessor and feature an improved display, as well as front-facing camera and Facetime video chat support. And some reports suggest it will be powered by one of Qualcomms multimode chips and will run on both GSM and CDMA-based networks around the world.

In its last earnings calls, Apple said it had sold nearly 15 million iPads, since it went on sale last spring.

This is a very big deal, although Apple will be facing increased competition with the launch of a passel of tablets coming from numerous manufacturers, most of which are using the Honeycomb version of Googles Android mobile operating system.

According to several sources close to the situation, the Wednesday date in a little more than a week is firm and will take place in San Francisco, the scene of many such Apple events.

In that case, the venue is likely to be the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

Its not clear when Apple will begin sending out its famous invites for the gathering, but I am guessing soon, in order to get the Apple faithful to the proper level of froth.




(The image above is from one of my favorite previous save-the-dates.)

Now that this date is confirmedat least by me!the next round of speculation will be around whether Apple CEO Steve Jobs will appear or not.

He is currently on leave to deal with ongoing health issues, although has been sighted all around Silicon Valley at various places. In addition, Jobs sat right next to President Barack Obama at a high-profile meet-the-tech-moguls dinner in the area last week.

In other words: Let the media frenzy begin

apple is not perfect, but it's not doing to bad either, and everything you said about apple's competitors are true, particularly in RIM's case. go ahead and take your self-righteous nonsense somewhere else. i'm sure your hard work is really appreciated, but it's not needed.

btw I think there's profit taking on Apple. It's a "coiled-spring" stock it will bounce so - a buying opportunity though I think it will drop to 320 first

My best guess:

1. Apple won't have a special event for the MacBook Pro refreshes. They'll just appear on the website one day.

2. The special event will be for iPad 2 with significant enhancements. The kicker: They'll be available immediately.

Why would Apple -- which has iPhone, iPod touch and iPad that all run iOS and all do many things, including playing games -- come out with a 5- or 6-inch pad that only plays games?

I will agree with that. 'Rain' is getting a little long in the tooth.
Everyone seems to like and agree with my other handle here thou.

Maybe it is time to slay the troll and let the parasites win. Then the big love-in can get on without any interruption and real world perspective.

After 30+ years, I'm starting to consider a computing life outside of Apple anyways. This new round of giving consultants the middle finger, insatiable greed, and just pure arrogance has really left a bad taste in my mouth.
Yes, some of us have been in Apple's court for a very very long time. There is a changing of the guard going on and not everyone is happy with the direction. The company is making 1984 exactly like 1984 in some kind of twisted irony.
Yah yah, 'don't let the door hit you on the way out... blah blah blah'.

Just remember one thing.
Apple didn't get to where they are today because of their technology, their innovation, their industrial design, their concepts or their leadership. They got there because of people. People who contributed not for money - but for an ideal.

Today, that mojo is all but gone. They no longer care about the ideal - just getting 30% of whatever it may be.

Maybe it's that kind of greed that makes big business successful.
Maybe it's that kind of greed that makes big business fall.

I will say this - if you don't think about these things and are only concerned about the little numbers in the top right... then you are truly blind and will reap the results you deserve.
