March 2 Event Rumor Roundup
Engadget is reporting
that some of the features that have been previously thought to make it to the iPad 2 won't be seen at Apple's media Event, held on March 2, at 10:00 AM Pacific Time.
Going against earlier rumors, Engadget states that the next generation iPad will not support a high resolution display, something that we expected. Also omitted from the final design of the iPad 2, an SD slot. If you've been keeping up with the rumor mill, you probably already knew those two features are unlikely.
Other features that Engadget is reporting seem more likely. Those include upgraded RAM (most likely 512 MB), a thinner design with the same exact screen size, and we'll most likely see the next generation proprietary Apple chip, the A5 processor. They also expect front-facing and rear cameras.
As far as other things we might hear about March 2nd, we'll most likely see what's in store for the future of MobileMe, now that it has mysteriously gone missing
. Engadget also suspects that we'll see an introduction to iOS 5.
We'll update you all as the event gets closer, we're less than a week away!
