iPad 2 event set for end of February?

Japanese site claims iPad 2 just weeks away

Yet more iPad 2 release chatter hits the web.

With iOS 4.3 mooted for release this time next week, it’s perhaps not unreasonable to surmise that the iPad 2 won’t be far behind the software update. And that’s exactly what Japanese Mac site Macotakara reckons, claiming Cupertino is plotting an iPad 2 event for the end of February.

It says that following a small gathering to unveil the second-gen slate, Apple will look to release the iPad 2 at the start of March, although it says it’s unclear on whether this will happen simultaneously, or be staged by territory as it was with the original iPad last year.

With a slew of case and screen leaks in recent weeks, there’s no doubt that the iPad 2 will soon be with us. But until Apple sends out event invites and gets the tech world jabbering excitedly, an exact date remains unknown.

Does the end of February seem like a likely date for the iPad 2 release? Let us know what you think on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
