    DigiTimes is still going strong with the iPad 2 stories, and today it’s reporting that Foxconn Electronics’ plants in Shenzhen, China have recently been told that they will be shipping the iPad 2 within the next 100 days, with the first shipments numbering 400,000 to 600,000 units. According to Foxconn’s sources, the iPad 2 will be shipping by the end of February 2011. Mass production was actually supposed to start in January, but as the firmware is still being tested, it has been postponed until February. DigiTimes also says that because Foxconn’s new Chengdu plants are still only in pilot production, the Shenzhen plants will be responsible for the majority of the iPad 2 production. As ever, Foxconn has declined to make any comment whatsoever on the matter!

    These rumours certainly are very strong at the moment. Could we really be seeing the iPad 2 on sale by the end of February 2011?

      I want!
      Other than a facetime camera and a bump in speed, I'm only hoping for a bit faster page loading in Safari.

      OK, I'll play the devil's advocate here, and assume a lot of people (maybe most) will give serious thought to upgrading to a faster, lighter, better model that has new and improved features. It's easy enough to upgrade with a PC, so why not with an iPad?

      Maybe, but maybe not... Will you be able to transfer all your apps & other items from one iPad to another? Will the iTunes program let you do that, or will you have to start over and buy all the apps again? What about all your Kindle books?

      Ooooh faster, more memory, slimmer, early next year.............oh please oh please

      Actually reads more like a new years resolution......

      Definitely buying.

      @DM51 backwards compatibility is a must. Apple wouldn't be so stupid to piss of ten million users and developers. I hope iTunes will get a major overhaul at the same time.

      For me to buy another iPad, it's going to have to be a complete makeover, not just a little faster, slimmer, and lighter.

      Dont worry about that, that is one thing (maybe the only thing?) that iTunes does really well. Once you buy an app, it is yours for your devices - up to 5 if I remember correctly. Just sync and backup before you plug in the new iToy and it just works.

      Now if they would only put cameras in each corner of the screen they could use gesture recognition, and we wouldn't need to touch them. Just wave .......

      Your Kindle library is actually tied to your Amazon account. When you log into the Kindle app on your new iPad with your current username & password, this will register the device and you will have access to your whole Kindle library.

      Didn't they just come out with the first iPad?
