Apple have begun sending out invites for an event scheduled for March 2nd, and here’s a copy of the one received by Engadget. The graphic on the invite features a Calendar app icon where the focus is clearly on the number ’2′, and a peel-away in the corner reveals an iPad. The text on the graphic reads ‘Come see what 2011 will be the year of’, obviously referring to the fact that 2010 was quite widely accepted as the year of the iPad (1) as far as tech goes. My only hope is that the convention of renaming the device year-upon-year as has happened with the iPhone doesn’t happen with the iPad and that it remains as simply ’iPad’, as is the case for almost all other Apple products. Actually, who am I kidding: my real only hope is that our invitation is in the post!
PS: We’re still not back in full swing, but as I’m lead here not sleeping (again) I simply couldn’t ignore posting this. Stay strong, Canterbury.
