Apple is expected to introduce a new version of the iPad at a press conference March 2, according to reports in AllThingsD.
Consumers will be able to take delivery on the device in April, as expected, claimed Reuters, refuting a report earlier that the iPad 2 was held up in production and would not reach consumers until June. (See earlier story).
News of the delay had sent Apple shares tumbling by 3 percent.
The new iPad is expected to offer front and rear cameras with a slimmer form factor and a better display.
The iPad was arguably the hot technology device of 2010. It sold nearly 15 million units last year and upended the laptop and netbook markets. More than 50 million tablets are expected to be sold this year, with Apple capturing the bulk of the demand.
