Apple shares hit all-time record as invites go out for next-gen iPad event

Shares of Apple Inc. (AAPL) shot up $8.00 to $533.76 after Apple began sending out official invitations to a special media event to be held in San Francisco on Wednesday, March 7, 2012 at 10am PT at he Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.

The event (invitation below) is widely expected to unveil Apple’s next iteration of their wildly successful iPad personal computer. Rumors of A5X, A6, dual-core and quad core chips are rampant. The device is widely expected to offer a Retina display, and other rumored features include: LTE/4G, better cameras (front and rear), perhaps even NFC.

One thing’s for sure: We’ll know if it’s the “iPad 3,” or “iPad 2S,” or “iPad HD,” or something else shortly after 10am PT on Wednesday, March 7th.

    1. I don’t either. But it could be turned sideways. Or the picture could be closer to the corner than we think.

      Maybe instead of a buyback, Apple could set up a deal where people could trade in a share of stock for an iPad. That’d be a sweet deal for Apple and all remaining shares.

    2. Looking at the thumb position and size, it’s a much wider bezel than even my 1st gen iPad. It looks to be about 1.25″ wide. I’m going out on a limb, but I really don’t think thats an iPad.
