Part of Apple Official Press Release :
iPad 2 will be available tomorrow at 5 p.m. local time at all 236 Apple retail stores in the US and through the Apple Store® (www.apple.com) beginning at 1 a.m. PT
You know what to do guys/gals .
This rumour coming straight from Japan, so Apple might be holding a small event to announce iPad 2 early next month or by end of Feb. I kinda get the announcement timing, but not the “small event” tag, why does it have to be small. iPad alone changed/revived the whole tablet industry, Apple should make it like a MEGA SUPER event .
Yes we go again on the rumour mill trail, so after the initial scare that iPad 2 might not get a high res screen things are changing. Latest rumour news suggests that iPad 2 is indeed getting a high resolution screen though not exactly not as the retina display on iPhone 4 but still it will be pretty good. The resolution might be somewhere around 2048×1536 which indeed will look crispy on iPad 2 screen. So, yes 1080p is on that track for iPad 2.
And yes it gets a SD card slot too, but not the USB port, little disappointing but something is better then nothing.
I wouldn’t get much more into the processor specifics but safe to assume that iPad 2 will get some serious processing power and it will come hand in hand with the dual core processor.
Apple’s next generation iPad and iPhone, both due the first half of this year, will pack a new version of the company’s custom A4 chip, with dual, faster graphics cores capable of supporting a Retina Display iPad and potentially bringing 1080p HD support to iOS devices, including Apple TV.
All in all its going to exciting time for iPad fans, when Apple releases the next instalment around April 2011.
This comes from Kevin Rose(yeah the Digg founder), who I must say have been pretty accurate in almost all of Apple related news/rumours. He confirms the cameras and retina display.
I have it on good authority that Apple will be announcing the iPad 2 in the next “3-4 weeks”, possibly Tuesday February 1st. The iPad 2 will feature a retina display and front/back cameras.
If you’re thinking of buying an iPad, hold off for now.
Can’t wait .
