Apple said to be working on iPad 2 Plus

Double-Plus Smug
Apple is said to be working on a new version of the iPad 2, set to launch by the end of the year.

Dubbed iPad 2 Plus, the device will apparently feature a higher resolution screen, with a much higher display density. With persistent rumours of a new 2048x1536 screen slated for upcoming iPad 2 versions, the news comes as no surprise.

FBR Capital Markets analyst Craig Berger claims that Apple has already sent out requests for qutes to different suppliers, but there is still no production schedule. In any case the device should appear in late 2011, but it might not ship until early 2012. The rest of the spec remains unclear.

However, it seems somewhat odd that Apple would choose to use the iPad 2 Plus moniker for a device with an entirely new screen and design, considering the fact that the underwhelming iPad refresh earned the iPad 2 brand.

Please, not this again.

You can barely get 27" displays with that resolution, and then for more money than high-end tablets cost on their own, so I wouldn't hold my breath for a 9.7" version anytime soon.

Granted, LG has created 720p-capable 4" display but still...

Then again Apple would have to make changes to iOS to allow for more graceful resolution scaling.
