Seems unbelievable, yet comes as an exciting bit. Apple is planning to launch both the iPad 2 and iOS 4.3 on the 9th of February which is a Wednesday and only two days away. The news comes from independent sources and they are pretty sure that Apple is going to it this Wednesday. If we dwell into the past, we can observe that Apple has always liked to launch its new products on a Wednesday. So, keeping that tradition of theirs in mind, 9th February (coincidentally a Wednesday) could actually see the launch of the tablet and the iOS.
On the other hand, Apple has never launched any product in a frenzy. Invitations to the media about a launch were always sent in advance (about a week earlier). But, if Apple were to launch iPad 2 the day after tomorrow, it is sure to hog the limelight away from the Mobile World Congress which is only a few days away from now.
