According to the Loop, the News Corp. iPad magazine called ‘The Daily’ will launch on February 2, a few weeks after the originally scheduled launch.  Also appearing on stage for Apple will be Eddy Cue.  Prior to announcing his medical leave, Steve Jobs was originally scheduled to appear on stage with Rupert Murdoch.

News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch will be making the announcement at the event at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and Apple vice president of Internet services Eddy Cue will join him. This is in contrast to News Corp.’s initial plans to hold the event at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in late January.

Also, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the release of iOS 4.3 at that time, since the iPad seemingly will need some additional features to deal with the new publishing model.
