    Now these images haven't been confirmed as real, but Gizmodo is reporting that the new case does coincide with some of Apple's patents. It's also interesting that the new case is directly compared to the current case.

    Or maybe its for that USB connector that everyone says makes the 1st generation an epic failure because it does not have one!

    Looks the same size as the current power/data connector on the current iPad and a USB port is a fair amount smaller.

    But does it run Flash?

    I thought lack of Flash is what some people bemoan as what makes the iPad an epic failure?

    I doubt its reality. What's most interest me is 'Rumor: Apple To Release 'Mini' iPad in Early 2011', you know a 7-inch tablet maybe very fantastic and carry-home.

    I think this is an old design and the slot on the side was for the micro sim card on the 3G... although it does'nt have the plastic top for the radio...

    I dont see a rear camera hole


    no flash is not epic failure, just an annoyance. Its ok as long as there is no other competition. If someone else was selling a tablet that worked just as great AND could do Flash and had USB, I would have probably bought it. Apple has enjoyed a period now being the only affordable slate available (there are others in the $2000-3000 range). When there are other good options out there, things should get interesting - depending on the quality of the "others". We are still months from that though.
