At 6pm GMT, Apple is expected to launch the iPad 2, the successor to the uber-selling iPad. At least we assume it'll be called the iPad 2 - the official name isn't known yet.

Predictions suggest the iPad mark II will be lighter and thinner, with more memory but perhaps not a higher quality screen. And will it support Flash Player?

You can watch live coverage of the event at these sites and blogs below:

If you have an iPad, check out the BBC Focus magazine iPad app, packed with content from the magazine enriched with audio, video and interactive graphics.

iPad issues are free for magazine subscribers and there's a FREE demo issue for everyone.

What do you think Apple will announce? What would be the ideal improvements to the iPad? Or are you just completely sick of hearing about them?
