Will Apple unveil iPad 2 on February 9? iOS 4.3 Calendar icon hints yes!

Florian wrote in to tell us about something he found in iOS 4.3 beta 2 that makes him think Apple might just announce the hotly rumored iPad 2 on February 9:

When looking at the preview for a chosen background in the settings app in iOS 4.3 beta 2 you can see that the calendar-icon shows a 9. Looking at the screenshots of the iPad homescreen in the Apple Store, the icon shows a 27. Since Apple presented the first generation of the iPad on Jan. 27th 2010, I think this is a clear evidence for the iPad 2 to be unveiled on Feb. 09th 2011.

Direction or misdirection? What do you think does February 9 sound like a good day for Apple and iPad 2 to take the stage?

UPDATE: Looks like Feb. 9 has been used for the overlay previous to iOS 4.3 beta 2. Rumor smashed. [BGR]
