Apple has just announced an event to show off the company's next generation iPad. Invitation were sent out to the media with the posted image above.

The event will take place at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco at 10am on Wednesday, 7th of March 2012 (Which is 8th of March 2012, 2am in Malaysia time +8 GMT)

There is no words of what's the changes will have on this new iPad, some guessing it will have a faster processor (Quad-core), high density display and more. Will it be called iPad 3? iPad 2S? Apple really good in covering.

From the image above, you can see the iPad has a missing home button. Does it mean, no more home button from now on? This is just a wild guess.

Let's see what Apple has to announce next week.
