With Steve Jobs or without, the show goes on at Apple. The company has seemingly confirmed -- by way of some snazzy invitations to media outlets -- that it will unveil the next iteration of the iPad on next Wednesday, March 2. While the tech giant stopped short of actually saying it will announce the iPad 2 at the event, overwhelming evidence indicates that is the case.

The invitations Apple sent out show a calendar page tearing away to reveal the top corner of the popular tablet computer. And the event will be held at San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts -- the same location where the iPad was unveiled in January 2010.

While specs of the iPad 2 are a tightly guarded secret, it is widely thought the device will feature a front-facing camera with FaceTime video support and be thinner than its predecessor.

Here's an image of the invitations sent out by Apple:
