It’s official, Apple will be announcing the iPad 3 on March 7

After all the rumors, leaks, and speculations, Apple has finally revealed the date of the iPad 3 announcement. The magical date is March 7th and here’s how the invitation to the press looks like.

The big event will be held in Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco at 10AM PST, March 7, which happens to be Wednesday.

The text on the invitation is intriguing as usual. “We have something you really have to see. And touch.” could definitely indicate about the iPad 3′s purported Retina display, which would definitely make a big impact on the tablet market.

Many rumors suggest that the iPad 3 will feature a quad-core CPU and LTE, but we just have to wait one week until Tim Cook steps on stage and reveals the tablet everybody will be speaking about for the time to come.

Update: Gizmodo think they might’ve cracked it. According to their quick investigation of the invitation posted above, the iPad 3′s retina screen is displayed on the invitation itself. Take a look.

Clearly, the icon on the iPad 3 (top) is much crisper and has more definition than the calendar icon on the iPad 2 (below). In addition, the home button seems missing, which explains the “And touch.” part in the invite.

What do you think? Retina display or quad-core processor? Or both?
