Apple issues invitations to iPad 3 media event

Apple officially confirmed that it will introduced the next gen iPad March 7 at 1 p.m. EST in San Francisco. Will it be called iPad 3?

The Cupertino, CA., based company issued media invites for the Yerba Buena Center. It’s widely expected that the new device will feature a “retina” screen like the one found on the iPhone 4 and 4S.

The tag line on the invitation reads: “We have something you really have to see. And touch.”
