Five iPad 2 Features 'Leaked' in New Report
While millions of holiday shoppers look for the best deals of the year on "Black Friday" today, many prospective iPad buyers have decided to hold off on their first generation tablet on the heels of more reports indicating that the iPad 2 will reach consumers in spring 2011 with a slate of sweet new features. This morning, DigiTimes (citing a report from the Chinese-language Economy Daily News) reveals that sources have "leaked" five new features of the new iPad 2.
- Video phone
- New display technology (Retina Display?)
- 3-axis gyroscope (for gaming enhancements)
- Better mobility
One of the most exciting potential developments would be the addition of a front facing to the iPad 2, bringing the full FaceTime experience to tablet users. Such a move would be "expected to benefit Apple iPad's webcam suppliers," DigiTimes reports. Additionally, the best we can tell is that the reference to "better mobility" suggests a sleeker, more slender model, likely sporting thinner glass, as the report notes. This development would be aided by the infusion of Apple's "Retina Display" technology, which would give the iPad viewing experience the same wow factor of the iPhone 4.
Needless to say, there's nothing overtly shocking about these predicted new features of the second generation iPad. But, until now, we haven't been afforded the opportunity to hear directly from credible sources and media outlets that the added attributes we would expect and desire in a new iPad are actually on tap for the next tablet. Some, of course - especially those who already own an iPad - are hoping for "more," as it will likely take a substantial slate of new bells and whistles to convince a relatively new iPad owner to once against drop somewhere between $500 and $1000 for a second generation iPad within the next few months.

I love the future ipad 2 already.
I love the word Video Phone. So we can do facetime? ;]

Come on seriously Retina Display? Do you know how many pixels that would be? There is no way it would stay under $1000 if it had Retina Display. If your going to make up 'Facts' then at least make believable ones.

We did not need a "leak" to know this...

The camera will be cool, and the new display and gyroscope will be cool too.
If the USB will let you plug flash drives and other devices in to it, that will be the best new feature for me.

Better mobility?? Because it's such a pain to drag my iPad around everywhere... I'm sure it just means they're making it thinner or less of a border around the screen; which in essence all boils down to saying "new design."

Love it and also love the change in thickness because there will be thousands of ipad first gen for sale with case on craigslist!
The old cases may not work on the new model.
I've got no problem riding the rear of the tech curve and getting
the goods for way less.
On a side note........Sales tax used to be a little inconvenience
but holy **** .....in AZ.......it will add a 50 spot to your 500.00
ipad! So your 499.00 pad with case is instantly almost 600.00!!!
No wonder I'm buying used!

Of course it's going to bring itself up to the iPhone 4 level in some ways, nothing new. Facetime will be awesome on the iPad especially with a retina display.

better mobility = smaller size, thats a downgrade for me.
