Apple is inviting reporters to an event next Wednesday in San Francisco, and it may have to do with a new iPad model.

The invite had an image of part of an iPad screen with a single line that read "We have something you really have to see. And touch."

The company has been widely expected to reveal the third version of the iPad soon.

Apple didn't provide any details on the new device, but there were rumors of a sharper screen and faster cellular broadband options.
