  • All Things Digital: iPad 2 Media Event in the Works for March 2nd


    Reports from earlier this morning suggested that production delays could prevent the iPad 2 from reaching the market until June. While there is no confirmation at this time regarding when the second generation Apple tablet will be released, the Wall Street Journal's All Things Digital is reporting that Apple will unveil its iPad 2 at a media event that now appears tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, March 2nd, in San Francisco, California.

    Apple will hold its much-anticipated event on March 2, where the tech giant seems poised to unveil a new version of its hugely successful iPad, according to multiple sources.
    While few specifics are known about the hotly anticipated iPad 2, it's safe to assume that a front-facing camera is on tap, complementing the refreshed tablet's thinner design and improved display. With an estimated 15 million iPads already sold, the ravenous tablet market has arguably been hankering for the second generation iPad with even greater intensity than they anticipated the first.

    Kara Swisher of All Things D says a venue for the rumored March 2nd event hasn't yet been revealed. But the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, where Apple is quite fond of holding media events, will likely be the place. There is also no word as of this writing as to whether Apple CEO Steve Jobs, currently on medical leave from the company he helped found, will lead the presentation.

      It won't have better resolution... they won't upgrade TOO much too soon. Just enough to keep up with the Xoom and Playbook which don't have better resolutions than the current iPad. You'll get a crappy camera, a dual core processor, I'd guess 512MB RAM, and significantly thinner and lighter. I'll be pre-ordering for sure!

      Man I wonder how many of you excited folks were the ones crying about how horrible the iPad looked a year ago...

      No offense meant there but seriously someone should dig up some old posts from this forum. I got flamed repeatedly every time I said I was excited about the original iPad...

      Well, you weren't the only one that got excited. I barely missed the pre-order, but still had it in hand 2 weeks after release. It was awesome...

      After a few months, it lost some of it's luster. June came, and I bought the iPhone 4, and a few months later I sold the iPad. Awesome gadget, but I found that I was still using my laptop for all my web-browsing, games, and e-mail. Almost everything else I loved about the iPad can be done on the i4.. I might try an iPad 2, but I doubt it.

      It's time for me to really give Mac a test-drive, I'm buying a Mini this weekend. Not sure whether OSX, or Win7 is better for me, but I'm going to find out!
