After hearing all the rumors, we can finally hear the iPad 3 confirmation directly from Apple’s mouth from invites they sent to official medias. According to The Loop who were one of the lucky that were invited to the event, the announcement will be held at 10:00 am on Wednesday, March 7, 2012 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. In the invitation, Apple says they “have something you really have to see. And touch.”

The image of the iPad above is likely the first image of the iPad 3 we have seen. The resolution of the iPad in the image looks higher than the resolution of the iPad 2 and first-gen iPad.

After all, it looks like the rumor about the iPad 3 reported by AppleDaily last week is true. The report has the same date for the announcement — which was rumored to be March 7th. They also said that the iPad 3 will have a 8 megalpixels camera, quad-core CPU, and is expected to launch with iOS 5.1. Those rumored expect are great. I hope that AppleDaily gets the specs right as well.
