Update: Apple just announced the iPad 2′s specs and launch date.

Fanboys get your lube ready, because Apple has now made that March 2nd event that we told you about yesterday, official.  It probably goes without saying, but based on the invite, pictured above, you can see, or infer that it will be about the iPad 2.  We’re sort of hoping they’ll announce the launch of a new set of Macbooks as well.  Some how we doubt they’ll make an iPhone announcement since they just launched the iPhone 4 on Verizon and we’re not close enough in the product refresh cycle for that to historically happen.

So what should we expect in terms of specs when it comes to the fabled iPad 2?  Of course an updated, higher rez screen.  That goes without saying, especially seeing as the iPhone already sports this tech.  We’re also hearing, at least according to yesterday’s rumor, that it will be slimmer, have a front facing camera (duh) and updated processing power.

Fortunately, March 2nd is only one week away.
