Coincidence? I think not. Right now Eric Schmidt is giving Google’s Keynote speech at MWC. So what can Apple do to keep the spotlight on them? Send out invites for a March 7 iPad 3 event in San Francisco at the same time and steel the headlines. It’s just a speculative launch date and it’s already overshadowed Schmidt on Twitter.
Being that MS is set to unveil Windows 8 Consumer Preview tomorrow this also tells you who Apple considers their prime competition right now…or their archenemies. Either way, the gloves are off…and a lot of iPad 3’s are about to be sold.
