    2011 is getting closer and closer and for the first in the iDevice line-up to refresh we have, the iPad. The iPad 2 is set to launch early 2011 with tons of rumored features along with some we don't even know of. Apple could have something like... a robotic are come out from the headphone jack and serve your coffee ("here is some cab fare"). Well, the rumors are becoming more and more believable as the date gets closer.

    This time we have a mystical USB port to be included in the 2nd Gen. This is now a standard in Europe and since Apple has cellular devices there... they are going to have to move a few things around, meaning micro or mini USB might be on the next model. This would of course replace the dock connector, or possibly just be a second port on the iPad. We also have a retina display most likely meeting up with the line-up, sweet! Facetime camera(s) and included Gyroscope are a bit of a no brianer. Finally we might see a more slim/ more mobile change to the body(could it really get smaller?).

    Does anyone else get this when you try to watch that video: "The server is not correctly configured".

    I have seen this before when trying to watch videos here.

    Thanks,

    Tom.

    Any educated guesses as to when the Ipad 2 is coming out?

    I have a wife who wants one.

    Apple employees, especially the sales people, aren't told anything with respect to dates, details, and the great stuff that we all want to know, like when the new iPad is coming out. It's not worth pestering the poor folks because the company doesn't tell them anything. BUT, that being said, I have heard it said that it would "make sense" that the iPad 2 would come out a year after the first one. Can't say where I heard it from. Take it or leave it.

    This is my opinion.... The iPad is lined up to get the iPhone's handmedowns... I think your wishing to much for USB ports hdmi ports...ect. They are going to focus on improving the iPhone and the next year implementing it on the iPad. So this next refresh I'm thinking more RAM,Display,front Camera,different case(maybe),different volume & mute switch (like iphone4),better battery life,FaceTime......just makes sense why make new when you can fit it with stuff you have already for the most part implemented......;)

    HDMI port is wishful thinking...if Apple doesn't even have that on their MacBooks do people honestly think Apple will bring it to the iPad? :p

    USB could happen, but perhaps micro-USB due to the thinness of the iPad.

    Camera is a no-brainer though; I think there may be a back facing camera too considering the iPad is being used by businesses, surprisingly. Consider scanning barcodes as an example.

    I took a look to see when the first post was made thinking this thread was months ago. Well, we can't be anymore "late November" then today. :)

    From the amount of advertising I see on television there is no way that a new iPad will emerge until sometime next year. This prediction, IMHO is way off.

    Edit: I think the OP was just giving an update on what speculation was at this time of the month, not when the iPad would come out.

    You want 1920x1080 on a 10" screen? Not gonna happen, not until iPad 4 or 5 minimum.

    Reports of the 7 inch screen seem to be coming back....

    Retina display? No, that would mean far too many pixels that has ever been on a computer before

    USB port? Potentially

    Mornings going to be that different from iPad 1 IMO.

    iPad 3 and 4 is where it's at!

    I think the iPhone 2 will get a higher resolution display, but it will be higher than the "retina" display on iPhone 4 because the iPad we have now is already higher resolution than the iPhone 4. They do need to up the resolution to make the screen look as good as all the new Android tablets coming in Q1 2011.

    It's more than likely set to be released the beginning of the second quarter of 2011. Good luck.

    There are so many rumors about iPad 2 Recently,
    i heared that iPad 2.0 will released on Christmas Day this year.
    But i think that is impossible, than USB, external keyboard,
    flash, keep the original screen size. 9.7
    Above is my desire for iPad 2.0

    With the amount of feedback they have acquired by now I suspect it will be a refinement of the current machine rather than a radical upgrade.

    Given their aggressive approach to pricing initially I wouldn't be surprised if they spring it on us early to keep the competition off balance.

    That said I will buy one if only to use the camera as an impromptu scanner with evernote.

    Wonder if you can trade in the old one towards the new one?
