Apple Event: Will iPad 2 Be Unveiled March 2?


"Thus, my gut feeling is that Apple will move the iPad to a September release schedule, alongside the iPods," he said. "But they wouldn't want to wait over a year and a half from the announcement of the original iPad to announce the second one — not with these stakes, and not with so many serious competitors trying their best to catch up."

TechCrunch said a source told it that a "fall surprise" from Apple is connected to another new version of the iPad.

When reached by at the time, an Apple spokeswoman declined to comment.

Enderle said that if Apple thinks its iPad is falling behind rivals, it could roll out a third version earlier than next year. But he said he hasn't heard anything indicating that might happen.

"They might if the iPad 2 technology execution appears to be falling behind what is going on with regard to Android and other competing products," he said. "I do know that Apple is very confident about the iPad 2 and outspoken about it. And we pretty much know now what all the competitors will have, so it would be unusual for [Apple] to be unconfident.
