You probably weren't cool enough to get one ... but Apple just sent out some extremely cryptic invitations to an exclusive event next month -- when it's expected to announce the brand new iPad 3!!!
The invitation -- sent to several media outlets -- shows a finger on an iPad-type screen ... with the text, "We have something you really have to see. And touch."
The media event is scheduled for March 7th in San Francisco -- but while everyone's expecting Apple to unveil a groundbreaking iPad follow-up ... no one really knows what's gonna happen.
