Apple will announce its next-generation iPad at a special media event scheduled for Wednesday, March 7, according to a new report. Citing sources who have been reliable in the past, iMore reports that the device will feature a 2048×1536 Retina display, a quad-core Apple A6 system-on-a-chip, and “possibly” 4G LTE wireless data capability. The latter feature was later confirmed by the Wall Street Journal, which claims that both Verizon and AT&T will offer 4G data plans for the device. The iMore report goes on to repeat claims that originated with iLounge, including the suggestion of a vastly improved—5-8 megapixel—rear camera and FaceTime HD-capable front camera for the device.
