rumors say it's likely it will release in time for Christmas 2010.
And where are you hearing such rumors??? The 4.* iOS update will be released in November so it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever at all that Apple would put the 2nd generation iPad on the market so soon. It's really not a rumor, it's just wishful thinking on someone's part!
New iPad (iPad 2) to Come Late This Year with FaceTime Support [Apple Rumored to Release Next-gen iPad Earlier Than Expected, by Christmas 2010] TFTS – Technology, Gadgets & Curiosities
I personally don't care too much. if i sell my ipad it will be summer of next year, not this December.
I should start my own tech blog that just rehashes loads of other rehashes of random BS rumours that someone with no connection with the actual story posted as idle speculation on the Internet six months previously.
I think it'd be a hit. After all - the rest of these jokers get away with it.
This was hilarious! Fun to read.
well then here's an article by pc magazine and apple insider.
Rumor: Apple to Release Facetime-Compatible iPad by End of Year? | News & Opinion | PCMag.com
Sounds believable ~ but have you ever known anything, from Xbox, to Ps3 to Care Bears, to any hot new item that is to be available by or for Christmas, not be advertised starting in September, if not earlier?
I have not.
Especially, by Apple. Trust me, I have learned a lot from the folks here and if this was going to happen, they would know.
I just got an iPad 2-3 weeks ago but would buy iPad 2 or galaxy tab when released late this year. this tablet has become very handy for me and takes place of my notebook 90% of the time and I haven't even booted my 5k water cooled i7 Desktop!
I would not be surprised actually, but I would most definitely be pissed off.
Let's see, face time, retina display, 512 megs ram, just to even out with competitors and their own iPhone.
The ram thing is what gets me mad the most. They gimped this version on purpose knowing darn well their upcoming iPhone 4 had more memory. This has to be a pita for developers wanting a standardized platform, and the biggest screen, highest res igadget has 256megs ram?!?!
I tell you one thing, as a first time apple owner, this would make me doubt buying another. Unless apple offers a very generous trade up program.
If it were true that Apple plans to release a second generation in time for the holidays, they'd face a real quagmire regarding publicizing it. The iPad is HOT right now and people are buying them as quickly as they're manufactured. They're on a roll. If they were to announce today that the second generation iPad is to be released for the holidays (meaning, just a few months from now), sales would come grinding to a halt as people, already aware of the device's limitations, would opt to wait for the new model that corrects these limitations. So if they did have a new release pending, they'd probably make it a surprise release with very little forewarning, but major fanfare once it finally hits the market.
If it did have all of the bells and whistles that people think it will, would I buy it? I'm very satisfied with my first generation, but these tech wizards have a way of making you feel inferior for settling for the inferior generation of material, which was designed intentionally to be inferior to create more demand for later improvements. Working in the wireless industry, I've seen it for years: a new, groundbreaking device is released, but with one crippling limitation. Nothing will ever be released with everything the masses want. There's always something missing, and I'm certain that this is by design.
