Update / Apple holding event on March 2, likely to be iPad 2 reveal

Update: The event’s now been confirmed; Apple has begun sending out invites.

Original story: The original iPad has had its year in the sun, which means it’s time for Apple to upgrade.

Looks like they’ll be doing just that nexth month. Reports are coming in that Apple is to hold an event on March 2 in San Fransisco that’s believed to play host to the announcement of the iPad 2, which is said to have an improved display, front-facing camera, Facetime video chat support, and be lighter overall.

Obviously, we’re more interested in what all this means for the gaming side of the tablet. We’ll find out next week.
