A new iPad is on the horizon. Apple sent out invites today to an event next Wednesday at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, where it promises to "have something you really have to see. And touch." The event is set to go down at 10am, and is widely speculated to be the announcement of the iPad 3.
The tablet is rumored to have an updated 2048 x 1536 "Retina" display, faster processor , LTE, and an 8-megapixel camera. The invite for the event also seems to imply that the iPad 3 may be button-less, with the photo on the invite showing either a button-free iPad or the tablet in landscape mode.
CNBC reported this morning on Twitter that the device would have a quad-core processor and 4G LTE. However, its source also indicated the announcement of the tablet would go down in NYC, a rumor which has already proven itself false.
