Apple will hold an event to launch the iPad 3 in early February, according to the Japanese blog Macotakara, citing supply chain sources.Macotakara was pretty solid on iPhone 4S rumours last fall, so there’s a good chance it has decent sources.

The report also says Apple will show off new iOS 5 features with version 5.1. We learned this weekend that iOS could be getting direct integration with Facebook, just like it already has with Twitter.
