  • New Rumors For iPad 2 Surface


    We've all heard the rumors at this point about cameras on the front and back of the next generation iPad, and we've even heard about Apple dabbling in NFC (Near Field Communications) for future iPhones and possibly the iPad 2, but now iLounge is reporting on a new set of rumors for the iPad 2.

    The report states that Apple is readily developing chips that will interface with NFC capabilities built in to future iDevices, probably the iPad 2. There would be no need for any other type of connection, like bluetooth, with the development of these chips. It also seems Apple may be moving away from the current aluminum body seen on the current iPad, and may opt for a carbon fiber add-on. However, the source indicates that they are not sure carbon fiber will make it on to the final design.

    Finally, the source also states that Apple is still toying with the idea of a 7 inch tablet, even after Steve Jobs stated at a recent earnings call that these devices were "Dead on Arrival" and did not offer a strong tablet experience. Apparently a manufacturer has been asked to develop a screen to be used as a 7 inch iPad, although again, it is unclear whether these products will ever see the light of day.

    Another day, another pack of rumors about what we'll see on the next iPad. Am I the only one who wants Apple to announce this darn thing already?

      Would a 7" iDevice be an iPad Nano, or an iPod Touch XL

      Good question. Either way I don't think it's a good idea

      If they would add AWS support for 3G then I'd buy one right away. If not I'll wait for the LG G-Slate.

      For every 100 rumors 3 are true. 2 of them being that a new generation of a certain iDevice is coming and the date it will be available.

      Forget you guys, I'm holding out for iPad 4....

      I think it would be a poor marketing decision on Apple's part to have a 7" iPad.

      Although I'm a HUGE FAN of Apples iPad if the picture depicted in the first pro shows what the New IPad will look like I think I'll stick with what I have. Yeah having a Duel camera is nice and possible duel core still the fact that the screen looks pretty huge, I'm not sure if I'd want something THAT BIG!!. But I'll wait n see what apple does.

      I so badly want the ipad2! even if the rumors are or arent true about what ever it may have or wont have. We do know one thing. It will in some way impress us all with something fantastic and new! "hopefully" either way i want one. And I support the usb idea 100%! Even if apple limits its capabilities,Im sure some dev will work a work around for it and give us the ability to do more then just WHATS ALLOWED. I mean so far look how far we have came as a community. Sharing thoughts,ideas and information. It may take time but who cares. Anticipation makes the hunger stronger. Besides that, already as a group we do more then "RULE THE AIR" we rule our devices!! whether some like it or not. Agreed?

      Definitely not a 7 inch I'm guessing there just making it smaller by getting rid of some of the parts that aren't touch screen like half of the black border

      I know the topic was ipad2, but I already have the first iPad and a iPhone 4. But I have promised my wife, I would have the snip :-( if I can have the next iPhone 5 and she can have my iPhone 4.

      When will it be announced, re the next gen iPhone and are we likely to see one this year???

      Well it's good to hear rumours about NFC getting added to the ipad2.The only rumour that i don't like hearing is that the ipad2 will have a 7inch display which according to me is not a very ideal screen size for a tablet p.c as it leaves a tablet with a reputation of just a bigger mobile phone just like the galaxy tab.I think apple should stick to the 9.7 inch screen size as it is an ideal screen size for a tablet p.c according to me.

      Kind of wish you hadn't said that. I never really noticed on mine until then. Now it bugs the shyt outta me. Like when you stare at your ears, and realize how big they are compared to you head.

      Also doubt they shrink it, unless the remove the home button.
