Here we are again, in the world of iPad 2 rumors… This time, it seems the device will be released even earlier than the its predecessor, seeing the light of day in March, according to Macrumors. An interesting theory regarding the announcement of the product involves the end of the Chinese New year, that will conclude on February 17th.

Japanese blog Macotakara claims that Apple is waiting for the Chinese New Year to end in order to make its big announcement. We were pretty sure that the Cupertino giant was going to make the announcement this week, on February 9th, but a week or two of delay are no biggie, provided that the iPad 2 is a good surprise.
