Apple could announce the next-generation iPad as early as next week, according to a report today.
Apple hasn't sent official invitations yet, but it's been widely assumed Apple would start selling an updated version of its popular tablet about a year after the original device went on sale. The iPad debuted in stores the first weekend in April 2010. An introduction at a press conference on March 2 would give Apple about a month before sales begin.
The AllThingsD report hit several hours after a rumor began making the rounds this morning that the next iPad would be delayed until this summer.
