iPad 3 Media Event Preparation Begins At Yerba Buena for March 7th

 In Tablets

Apple earlier this week sent out invitations for iPad 3 media event at the Yerba Buena Arts Center in San Francisco. On Friday, the Cupertino giant began to put up the banners to prepare for the iPad 3 launch event next week.

MacStories has posted a few photos of workers putting up banners on the theater’s exterior glass wall in the form of panels,which make up one larger image. The banner being put up now resembles the invitation for the original iPad announcement, confirming the obvious that the event is all about the third-gen iPad.

The banners are typically put up about a week prior to the launch event, and are completed within a few hours of the workers starting. The inside of the theater may also be decked out with banners of the iPad 3 keynote event.

Apple’s media event is expected to be cover the iPad 3, with a higher resolution retina display, A6 quad-core chip, and better camera. The event has also been rumored to unveil the third generation Apple TV, which may arrive with a clocked up version of the A5 chip, currently being called ‘A5X’. The iPad 3 keynote event is on Wednesday, March 7th at 10:00AM PT and 1:00PM ET.

    For me size is important.  I would like to buy a tablet smaller than the current iPad.  If Apple develop one I’d be very interested  – whenever that might be.  In the meantime I’m tempted to buy a Kindle Fire.  But once again it’s a question of timing.  When will Amazon decide to market its device  in Australia – who can tell?  I’ll wait to see which comes first – Kindle Fire or a more compact Apple iPad.  So I guess I’m one of those uncommitted customers that both Amazon and Apple are trying to woo.  Yet it seems strange that in their different ways both companies seem to miss the target – one because of a lethargic marketing strategy; and the other because of slowness in responding to customer demand.
