SAN FRANCISCO--It’s been only a week since Apple distributed invitations to a media event today in San Francisco, but analysts, bloggers and fans have been feverishly speculating for months about what the company will announce. Many believe that Apple will announce an iPad 3, or iPad HD, and that it will offer only incremental upgrades: no more home button, a better display, the integration of the Siri voice assistant. But there have also been rumors that Apple has been experimenting with a new type of touch screen that would allow the display to take on a different feel based on what was being rendered on the screen. Apple, as usual, has been tight-lipped, declining to make any statements at all about today's event beyond what’s on the invitation (a picture of part of what looks like an iPad) – adding to the suspense.
