Apple's next-gen iPad will be reportedly announced March 2 and in the meantime the rumor mill is kicking into overdrive.

BoomTown's Kara Swisher reports that Apple will hold its iPad 2 launch event March 2. That report goes a long way toward dispelling rumors swirling around Apple today.

Simply put, today has been nothing but Apple iPad rumors. Earlier in the day, Apple shares took a hit on rumors that the iPad and iPhone 5 would be delayed. These reports were credited to two analysts at Yuanta Securities, which covers Hon Hai Precision. According to these rumors, production bottlenecks would delay the iPad.

Those rumors, which appear to be untrue, were later squashed by the report of a March 2 event.

Add it up and the next-gen iPad appears to be set to hit its timelines---set by the media and rumors of course.

Now those items are taken care of we can all begin speculating on the iPad 2 features and whether Android tablets can compete.
