Apple iPad 2 will ship by February: report(Read article summary)
An Apple iPad 2 could hit the market in early 2011, according to several sources inside the tech industry.
The iPad 2 is probably just a few months away. Now before people starting hopping up and down and accusing us of getting ahead of ourselves, we'll offer the usual caveats: Most of the "evidence" of an Apple iPad 2 is anecdotal and speculative, and yes, it could all turn out to be spectacularly false. At the same time, a flood of unsubstantiated reports from all over the place also presaged the launch of the original iPad. Plus, the timing pretty much lines up perfectly.
Here's the dirt thus far: In late November, the Economic News Daily, an English-language Taiwanese paper with sources inside the tech industry, reported that Apple was prepping a sucessor to the original iPad. According to the News Daily, this "iPad 2" would include FaceTime functionality, fresh display tech, a pair of cameras – one on each side – and a USB port.
