The rumors have been flying fast and furious about Apple lately. Is Apple going to produce an iPhone that is smaller, cheaper, or both? Does Steve Jobs only have weeks to live? Who knows?

What we do know is that TechCrunch reports that rumors from analysts that the iPad was going to be delayed until June or September sent Apple’s stock prices into a tizzy, and it wasn’t long after that that another rumor began to circulate—the ever-present “people with knowledge of the matter” who weren’t supposed to talk to the press nonetheless leaked the fact that Apple’s new iPad event will be on March 2nd.

Apple has reportedly scheduled a meeting later this month with all its retail employees, which strongly implies new products are coming. And it’s about the right time for a new iPad to make its appearance. It’s going to be fun to see just what rumors about its features are true.
