  • Leaked Photos Surface of Suspected iPad 2 Case



    'Tis the season of iPad 2 rumors, as evidenced by what could very well be the first visual "leak" pertaining to the second generation iPad, widely expected to hit the market during the first quarter of 2011. The top secret sneak peak in question comes from the folks at iLounge who have presented photographic materials that look an awful lot like iPad cases - but not for the current models.

    What we have here are iPad cases clearly outfitted for a rear-facing camera - a brand new addition to the Apple tablet. Near the bottom of the case you have ample space allotted for the speaker (where it's currently located on the first-gen iPad). But accompanying the speaker at the rear of the next-gen iPad could also be a place to put an SD card - another rampant rumor trailing the forthcoming iPad 2.

    Apart from what can be visually gleaned from such a tiny glimpse at a potentially dubious iPad 2 case, it's a safe bet that many of the features we expect to see on the next iPad (FaceTime chat capabilities, USB port, Retina Display, etc.) have a great chance at turning up on the refreshed tablet. Otherwise, there could be very little incentive for Apple fans to replace their first-gen iPad so quickly or ignore competing tablets in an increasingly crowded marketplace.

    On Tuesday, DigiTimes reported that the iPad 2 will ship as soon as the end of February 2011, with initial shipments estimated to reach 400,000-600,000 units.

      Do like me and just give it to your kids. If you aren't old enough to have kids then yeah, maybe a return would be a good idea.

I could def see it as something i would use at my house..but out in public? No. I would not hold up my ipad to take a pic of anything, that would look retarded!
      Great point, but I actually would have plenty of use for both a front and rear facing camera. Using the ipad at work a rear camera would be perfect for scanning in hard copies of documents. There are some apps that print to PDF and allow editing (commenting) on the PDF. I'd just be disappoint if a rear camera and facetime is all that Apple gives us.

      The tablet market is expanding and if Apple wants to keep up with the Crack-Droid they need too loosen up and give the people what we want. Good camera's, some form of flash capability, USB drive & SD Card compatibility, all while making it lighter with a better display (I haven't tried reading with the retina display in direct sunlight)...now then they would have a winner.

      ^The only problem I ever have with the Retina display in direct sunlight is the glass itself has a glare.

      The cameras work great for me, facetime anyone? maybe some people on here don't like to video chat but to me it sounds great! plus if the ipad didnt have a camera all you guys would want one but since it does, all you guys are sayin "NO NEED FOR DIS crap!" there are tons of cool apps out there that uses the camera like fat booth, goomifier, etc... You guys know without the camera it just doesnt feel right cuz thats the only reason I want the ipad 2! hey and atleast there probably making it smaller? the ipad imean

      Do people really FaceTime on their phones that much? I sure don't.

      I do hope the new iPad has a flat back, I don't like the rounded surface at all.

      I haven't used FaceTime once. (and before anyone goes off, I'm not saying that it's useless.)

      I see a reason for a
      Front camera because not everyone will have there laptops next to them, most likely not because they have there iPad, apple is pushing facetime, so it would only make sense for them to put one on the iPad. I don't feel a need for a back camera but would be nice to have. I just think it's going to look funny taking a picture without he back one
