    This will be disappointing if true. Right now they just have a display in their possession that they believe is an iPad2 screen. There is an unconfirmed comment on the report that says part of the model number, x02 or 02, should indicate a xga, sxga, or wxga size (xga is 1024x768, qxga is 2048x1536). I'm not sure if that's true or not, as I've found other LG wxga displays with different identifiers like W01 and WX4 (example), although that doesn't disprove it. Would still be good to see something that ties it to being an iPad 2 part, or confirmation of the resolution.

    They should try hooking it up to an original iPad and see what comes up.

    Sounds like it's like from iPhone 3G to 3GS except for the camera additions. More RAM and better processor ect

    Another unfortunate point against a high res screen is the rear camera. At the rumored 1MP resolution, its being said that it's for augmented reality apps. If we were getting a 3MP screen, shouldn't it have a 3MP AR camera?

    I hope the back of the iPad 2 is not beveled and lays flat like the iPhone 4 that would be sweet too. Plus thinner. But this resolution is crap if its true.

    Technologically, Apple is about 2 years ahead of the competition. It looks like that gap isn't going to close any time soon.

    Personally, I'll wait on the Retina Display. After using my r-display for the last 5 months, when I look at the iPad display it's incredibly pixelated.

    aren't they only a little over a year ahead?

    For me to get a new iPad, it will have to have something that sets it clearly better than the new competition. A high res display would do that for me. Playing catch-up with the processor and RAM would not. Since I already have an iPad, a new tablet would be a great opportunity for me to get a better look at the competition's features with an h-comb Android tablet.

    Before the iP4 came out, I was very very close to switching to a droid or a galaxy s. But I waited and gave Apple an opportunity to significantly upgrade their product and wow me with the hardware. Which they did. We'll see how things go when they announce the new pad. I'm kind of surprised they haven't at least announced the announcement yet.

    Seriously why not make it 1GB RAM to make everybody happy? For a device that size I'm sure Apple can make retina display happen as well. Apple always holding out on their customers.

    First of all iOS is a lot more efficient than all other mobile OS so it doesn't NEED 1GB RAM. Why not give it 8GB of RAM if you want to make that argument. There is a point of diminishing return where more doesn't equal better. It's a balancing act between cost/performance/overkill. Just because Apple CAN put a better display and more RAM doesn't mean it's cost effective at this moment at a $499 entry level price point. Lastly Apple's business model dictates that they don't upgrade too much too soon for fear that if they do there won't be much in the ways of upgrade the next year which would prevent their customer base from buying their annual refresh.

    Doesn't take much to think critically about things and realize why a business does what they do. They exist for profit and profit alone... not to make the super tech nerds on these blogs happy. (yes I am included in that statement haha)

    However, I would also enjoy some of the other rumored features as well.

    Apparently you do, by posting.

    I might actually consider getting the iPad 2 once it comes out, as being an early adopter for the first generation iPhone. I wanted to wait until the iPad was more matured and polished.

    I will buy the 1st gen iPad when the 2g comes out ! Hopefully when the 2g comes out the 1g price will drop, then I could afford one.
