If the latest iPad 2 rumours are to be believed, the iPad 2 will feature the same size screen but a slightly smaller overall size, leading to a smaller bezel, although there’ll supposedly be a better speaker, a new flat back, the expected two cameras and a potentially unlikely January release date.
An Apple Australia spokesperson has confirmed to me via email that Australia will be definitely seeing the iPad 2 on March 25! Meanwhile, a leaked and unconfirmed list of Australian iPad 2 pricing has appeared online - details and possible pricing within.
Yet again, third-party accessory makers have revealed an upcoming iPad design. Alibaba.com is awash in cases for a redesigned iPad. Nearly every case is for a device that has a thinner bezel and slimmer profile. In short, the next iPad will look like the iPad mini — except, you know, just not mini.
This is the standard story line for Apple devices.
HP has released a few teaser details of its upcoming iPad, um, I mean Slate device. While the company is betting the farm on Adobe Flash and AIR support being enough to give it the edge over the iPad, I can already see the device's biggest weakness - Windows 7.
Before the hot-selling iPhone 5 launched into existence, most of the surprise had already been ruined. We saw parts, heard about launch dates, and even saw full-fledged photos of the device. So if that disappointed you as much as it did me, you might want to look away.
These leaked pictures certainly appear to be of a legitimate iPad mini.
