iPad 2


The iPad 2 is coming soon, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal that said the next-generation device is currently in production.
Citing "people familiar with the matter" the new slimmer, lighter iPad will include a faster processor, a camera, and more memory. The resolution of the display, however, won't get much of an upgrade from the existing model, the report said.
The fact that the iPad 2 is coming isn't groundbreaking news, however. Apple has a pretty consistent history of sticking to a one-year update cycle for many of its products. The first iPad hit stores last April, so it could be logically assumed that the new version is on its way.
The Apple rumor mill has a history of prolific, unconfirmed reports. Last week a "Reuters eyewitness" claimed to spot the new iPad at the launch of News Corp.'s iPad-only newspaper, The Daily.
iPad accessory makers have also fueled the rumor fire, with several companies churning out cases that have features like an opening for a camera (which the current iPad lacks) or a space for a larger speaker. But as as PC Mag noted recently, these reports should be taken with a grain of salt. Apple rarely, if ever, comments on rumors. Not surprisingly, an Apple spokesperson declined to comment on the WSJ report.
The iPad has been the dominant tablet on the market, selling 14.8 million units in the nine months since its release, according to Apple. iPad sales made up 17 percent of Apple's revenue in the last quarter, totaling $4.6 billion, the company recently said in an earnings report.

  2. @Raini, no problem. Just sell it... or return it where you bought it. Apple products have a very high re-sell value.
    But I would suggest you wait until the presentation to decide if you really need the new iPad. Maybe it does nto have something you would want.

  9. Once the costs go down and the functionality goes up, I might consider some sort of pad. I'd pretty much want one that did everything from TV remote to blending strawberry daiquiris while letting me get online.

  18. I think it's odd the guy who ushered in the generation of the PC has been given credit for its destruction with the iPad. :)

    ReplyDelete

  25. Well if the last iPad is anything to go by this should be pretty popular. Hopefully OSX or something of the sort on it to draw me in. (Not a big Mac fan apart from the iPod)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I thought the iPad was ok; I'm anxious to see what kind of "improvements" they will have made.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'll finally be able to afford the old iPad once the new one comes out...hopefully

  34. Ahhh Apple. The first day you buy it, it's awesome.

    The next day they come out with the second generation that's twice as awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  35. If i was minted i'd definitely buy one. You know with apple it will look good and work pretty well. But it's damn expensive for what it is

    ReplyDelete
  36. Get rid of the faults on the first iPad, then we'll see.

    ReplyDelete
