  • Foxconn Shipping iPad 2 in February 2011?


    Rumors are swirling that the iPad 2 will begin shipping in the next hundred days, according to a new DigiTimes report. According to sources from within the Taiwan-based company, Foxconn will reportedly begin shipping 400,000-600,000 units by the end of February 2011. Officially, Foxconn had no comment.

    According to the report, Apple originally planned to start production of the iPad 2 in January, but had to push back the schedule due to firmware testing. Foxconn’s plants in Chengdu are still in a “pilot production” mode, so production of the iPad 2 will also be done at Foxconn’s Shenzhen plants as well. Of course, the actual release date for the iPad 2 is ultimately up to Steve Jobs. He may very well wait to release it till he feels that the time is right.

    The iPad has been a huge success for Apple and they are sure to sell quite well during the busy holiday shopping season. The iPad 2 is rumored to up the ante in the ongoing tablet wars, with a wide array of new features including multiple cameras for FaceTime, gyroscope support, a thinner case, retina display and a USB connector. We’ll just have to wait for the first quarter of next year to see what new features Apple decides to include on the 2011 iPad model. Hopefully, Apple will also find a way to reduce the price a bit so more people can join in on all the iPad “magic.”

      Every single time Apple releases a new product people go berserk over the fact that Apple is "ripping them off" when really it's simply good business and think.. If Apple sold you the worlds best, completely indestructible, loaded with all the features and gadgets would you ever need to buy another phone? They need to make money don't they... How do you keep your customers on their toes? Introducing new and better features each time, one upping your previous release.. So don't get mad if you buy the iPad now and then hear about the iPad two, it's an advancement and you hopped on the iPad a little late in it's lifetime, now iPad 2 shall arise and take over.

      True you can't put all your eggs in one release. The problem I have with Apple is that the new features they put in, other devices already have and then make it seem like it's the greatest thing ever.

      It's really getting to the point where the only feature you're going to be able to offer is a faster CPU,storage and memory everything else is going to be standard. So eventually you'll have to come up with no case designs and OS updates and UI changes.

      Get the G/F an Apple Gift card for the cost of the iPad and let her decide on if she wants to wait for the Gen2 or get one now:-) If you get her a Gen1 and you a Gen2 guess who's really going to have the Gen2 device and who's going to have the Gen1 devices.

Besides, just like any electronic purchase there is always something newer and better on the horizon and it's a personal thing how long each can wait. Personally, I love it and it fits my needs as is. Maybe the iPad 3 will be the next upgrade. I'm sitting at 3.2.2 until an untethered JB is available. No need to rusg to fix that which is not really broken.
      That said, the first gen iphone was sold for 600 dollars. Now we buy it for half that price with so many more features plus a Retina screen
