2011 is indeed the Year of the Tablet! It can now be said that the Apple iPad 2 will be out on March 2 based on the invitation to selected members of the press:
Please join us for an invitation-only event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco on March 2 at 10:00 a.m. Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. Please arrive early. RSVP to email@example.com.
I can't wait to have an Apple iPad 2! I'm also open for a review/demo test.
