    Sorry if this has been asked before, but does the iPad2 have stereo speakers built in?

    I don't think it really matters with the internal speakers since you can't really get the fully stereo effect, but if you listen through earphones or speakers, it will be in stereo.

    And the speaker is still at the bottom, I take it? Meaning if you want to dock it, you have no choice but to use the Aux line out on top, correct?

    The speaker is on the bottom, but more directed towards the back of the device pushing the sound away. I like the first generation design better personally.

    It's a hard placement. With the tapered edges there isnt much choice unless you want to put them behind the bezel and punch holes there. Although if they had gotten speakers on both top and bottom (left right in landscape) I thing the effect would have come off a bit better instead of making me feel like I'm lossing hearing in one ear. ;)

    Watch for a apple patent that will cover transmitting sound through solid glass and metal/plastic.

    Yes, because people want their new $800 iPad to be vibrating in their hands as they try to hold on for dear life.

    No it doesn't. You can get a good stereo sound with ear phones tho.
