iPad 2 news expected in February

Written by David Stellmack

Announcement details expected soon
The latest from the Apple grove seems to indicate that an announcement for the second generation iPad is coming soon. This seems to confirm reports from sources who tell us that Apple is keen to get the next generation iPad out before more competitors enter the market space.

While some are suggesting that Apple could be planning an announcement on February 9th, our sources say they have been unable to confirm this. Still, it is suspected that the iPad 2 will arrive in February, but no one seems to know what the exact date will be.

The new iPad 2 is said to offer a significant upgrade over the previous generation by adding many new features that will expand the usefulness of the platform. Sales of the first iPad were much better than even Apple expected, and with many waiting for Apple to arrive with a second generation design before buying one, it is likely that many buyers will be in a frenzy to obtain one once officially announced.

If it launches with the display resolution that's been rumored, 2048 x 1536, I'll forget that I ever said I'd buy a Motorola Zoom or other Android tablet.

Apple might be the only company I can think of, at least major company, that seems to realize DPI matters. Now if they'd only start making 16:10 monitors and give them insane resolution...oh, and more than one port.

2048 x 1536 would requite a lot of bandwidth to be processed. I don't know if there's a mobile chip that would be able to deliver fluent motion at such levels. It would still be pretty neat for pictures and stuff...

Well, what little has leaked about the Apple "A5" processor is that is is very powerful. Apple did the same resolution doubling on the iPhone with the 4, considering the iPad is physically much larger I don't see power and heat being insurmountable.

Another closed platform controlled by a control freak. Does it have Flash player yet? i don't think so. Sure the build quality is decent and the hardware is nothing to laugh but the pricing just gets ridiculous with apple products and then in less then a year it obsolete. I think as much as stuff becomes obsolete in the tech world Apple is just gouging with their prices and then pigeon hole you with their closed platform that does not even give you the option to have flash.
Whats wrong with just not installing flash from the factory and giving US the option to add it if we want? Oh and wait, if it really runs so poorly we can always uninstall it. Hmmmm I guess we have to pay a ton and then be told how to use our products. /rant

OK I feel better now

Sorry, but Apple isn't going to use the Tegra 2. They bought PA Semi and one other similar company who's name I can't remember. They have already designed their own ARM implementation for the original iPad and the iPhone 4.

An unsubsidized Xoom looks like it'll command $800. That seems pretty expensive unless it packs at least 64GB of internal storage, preferably more.

From what I understand, Apple had compatibility issues between flash and their touchscreens, so rather than just take the time to solve the problem, they just said screw it who needs flash.
