The Loop reports that Apple has sent out invitations to the press for a media event next month where the consumer electronics company is expected to announce the iPad 3. The event will be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time on March 7.

The 3rd-generation iPad is expected to have a retina display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels (the current iPad 2′s display has a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels) while its body may be slightly thicker than the current iPad 2. Other rumors indicate that the prices of the iPad 3 models may be higher than those of the iPad 2 and that shipments of the iPad 3 are already arriving in the U.S. from Foxconn, the factory in China where iPads are manufactured.

Apple press events are always exciting and I’m sure this one won’t be an exception. We’ll be at GDC in San Francisco at Moscone Center next week (so close yet also so far from Yerba Buena where the Apple event will be held) and we’ll be sure to post about the news that comes out of the event.

    ipad3 = woop woop yeaaaah dog i dig it. but i want THIN, and i want to be able to afford it. this upgrade is for luxury, for rich people. it’s not for the commoners. i am dirt poor and thus must decline all fancy schmancy gizmos. my ipod touch will mold over and be a hollow shell eroding into the ground before i buy anything at all…besides food. i love my ipod but hopefully it’ll last awhile longer. in a few years if i have cash i’ll buy the iPad5 :P

    I don’t care about thin as long as it isn’t much thicker. I care about battery life though. I would much rather have a slightly heaver ipad and get even more battery life like maybe 15 hours continuous use.

    To make me upgrade from my iPad 2, the iPad 3 will have to have a lot more additional features & improvements. I get on with my iPad 2 excellently, so number 3 is going to have to be something special to lure me into a purchase…
