iPad 3 Launch Looks Set for March 7

The device could be based on souped-up new Apple-made dual- or quad-core ARM chip

Apple Tuesday sent out an invitation for what is assumed to be the iPad 3 unveiling next week on Wednesday March 7.

The festivities will be held in San Francisco, not New York as CNBC put out there for a while.

The invite makes no mention of what Apple's announcing. It just reads: "We have something you really have to see. And touch." All the signs of course point to the next-generation tablet that may or may not be called the iPad 3.

The device could be based on souped-up new Apple-made dual- or quad-core ARM chip. The rumor mill had also suggested it will be 4G LTE-capable, with a higher-resolution screen and camera and perhaps function as a new stage for Siri to beguile.

First deliveries are reputedly set up to start March 9.
