It is confirmed.

Source: http://mashable.com/...3-invite-clues/

We now officially have a date for Apple's next major event — and an invite laden with hints.

The invite, sent to Mashable along with other media organizations, is full of the sly clues that Apple likes to include in invites to major announcements.

Going to trade in my iPad 2 before the value falls down the shit. :P

Here's a better source.

We’ll be liveblogging the whole Apple iPad event next week, so join us at 10AM PST on Wednesday, March 7 over at http://live.slashgear.com/ for all the news!

I hope it finally gets a retina display.
It is very likely that it will get the retina display.

Just look at some of the 'rumors' and the image of the invitation.
Some other sites even gave a comparison.
Lol yeah, I posted before clicking the link :)

But I shudder to think how much it will cost D:

What exactly do you do on/with an iPad?
hahaha!
what exactly are you doing on gbatemp?

No, I know what it can do. ;p
I just don't really know why anyone on here would want one.
I can understand why someone would buy it what with all the marketing but I don't see how that person would enjoy continuing using it.

What is it for?

ie. does it do anything really well that other things... don't?

heres what they are going to show off
-iPad 3
-Retina Display same dimensions of 9 in screen 2048x1536 dpi 264ppi (confirmed)
-A6 Processor Quad-Core @ 1.0ghz or the A5x Dual Core clocked higher ?
-1 GB RAM (has to be with the retina display so somewhat confirmed)
-Memory Sizes 16, 32, 64, 128?
-Size little bit thicker than iPad 2 (confirmed)
-2 Models Wi-Fi Wi-Fi + 4G/3G (confirmed) (Sprint, Verizon, AT&T)
-Back Camera 8MP (iPhone 4S camera)?
-Front Camera FaceTime HD (confirmed)
-iOS 5.1 (confirmed)
-Siri (confirmed)
-Possible Hz0 coating for water proof?
-Gorrila Glass 2?
-Bigger Battery (confirmed)

thats all for now maybe USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt IO but highly doubtful think some anaylist said iOS devices couldnt handle Thunderbolt b/c of how they are designed

Agree on the Retina Display, processor, RAM and iOS 5.1.

But...
1. The iPad already has a 16GB capacity. The one missing would be 128GB. 128GB would be quite likely as the 4S already has a 64GB capacity and the iPad is likely going to store more stuff.

2. I am actually quite skeptic about the camera. From 0.7mp to 5mp is quite far-fetched, needless to say 8mp. Besides, it does not have a flash still (based on rumors). I bet the upgrade will be to about 3.2mp, like the ones on the iPhone 3GS. As for the front camera, it is quite likely to feature FaceTime HD.

3. Hz0 and Gorilla Glass 2 will likely just add costs. I personally think it will not be implemented.

4. A bigger battery is possible. However I do see the battery life remain at 10 hours instead of any possible extension.

5. What I think would be likely will be Siri implementation with GLANOSS, just like on the iPhone 4S. Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 sounds near impossible.
