Report Claims Steve Jobs to be at iPad 2 Launch

Apple CEO Steve Jobs may make an appearance at the company’s March 2 iPad media event in San Francisco, according to insider sources. Word of Mr. Jobs’s appearance comes courtesy of setteB.IT, and would mark an unexpected break from his current medical leave status.

Apple will be hosting an invitation-only media event on March 2 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco where the second generation iPad is expected to be announced. Invitations for the event hinted at what might be in store with an image showing the corner of what looks to be an iPad.

Despite the insider information, it doesn’t seem likely that Mr. Jobs will be present at the media event since he has been publicly distanced from Apple since he started a new medical leave in January.

For now, reports of his attendance at the event should be treated as rumors.
