Apple today issued invitations to the media for an event next Wednesday, March 7, where it’s expected to launch the next iPad. Invitations were received by bloggers and reporters in the United States.

The news also confirmed earlier speculations that Apple would debut the new iPad 3 this March 7 which is the same day of the week Apple used to launch the original tablet in 2010 and last year’s iPad 2.

The invitation writes “We have something you really have to see. And touch,” read the invitation, which continues Apple’s tradition of keeping its invitation text cryptic. The background is a photo of iPad 3 with  a finger pointing to the Calendar app. It seems that the there won’t be a home button on the iPad 3.

Although specifications is not confirmed, the new iPad 3 might just sport a faster quad core processor, higher internal memory capacity. There might be 3 versions, LTE, 3G and WIFI only.

We shall see on March 7. Post your comments below.
