CNBC reports (via Matt Burns of TechCrunch) that Apple is set to unveil the third generation of its popular iPad next week in New York. Rumors abound that the new version will be 4G LTE compatible. If so, the next leap forward in mobile broadband is about to happen.

Update: According Zach Epstein of Boy Genius Reports, Apple has sent out iPad 3 event invites for March 7 in San Francisco, not New York.
