∞ Steve Jobs considers appearance at iPad 2 event

Reports started circulating earlier today that Apple CEO Steve Jobs would make an appearance at the company’s iPad 2 event on Wednesday.

[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]Citing “several sources close to the situation,” AllThingsD’s Kara Swisher wrote this afternoon that Jobs is “definitely considering” an appearance tomorrow. The appearance is not confirmed, which leaves those attending with the same amount of hope that they had yesterday.

Reports surfaced on Monday that the iPad 2 would be available almost immediately after its introduction on Tuesday, further squashing rumors that the device would be delayed until June.

The Loop’s Peter Cohen was at the Yerba Buena Center yesterday and snapped a picture of workers putting on the finishing touches for the event.

The Loop will have live coverage of the iPad 2 event tomorrow from San Francisco.
