Apple issues March 2 invitations


Philip Elmer-DeWitt is a senior editor at Fortune.

Apple (aapl) has issued the following invitation to selected members of the press:

Please join us for an invitation-only event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco on March 2 at 10:00 a.m. Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. Please arrive early. RSVP to rsvp_media@apple.com.

Presumably, the event is the iPad 2 unveiling widely reported Tuesday, and the cryptic reference is to what many are calling the Year of the Tablet.
