Apple to unveil iPad 2 on March 2

If you're planning a buy an iPad this month, hold on. It will be a good idea if you postpone your purchase a little longer. Why? It's because Apple is expected to unveil the second generation of their successful tablet computer, which with much anticipation will come with better, greater hardware as well as software upgrades.

Yes, the company already sent invites to press people in the states for an event that will take place in San Francisco on March 2.
