    MacRumors reports today on a story on a German website, MacNotes.de, that says that it has been tipped off by reliable sources that the iPad 2 will be launched in the US on either April 2nd or 9th. The report says that as with the launch of the first iPad in 2010, the next-gen iPad will be on sale in the US for at least three months before the first wave of international launches in July 2011. The sources also say that only Apple will be selling the iPad 2 for possibly the first six months after launch, with other retailers not getting their hands on stocks until October. The German site also lists some of the iPad 2’s specs, most of which we’ve heard about already (two cameras, Retina Display, etc), although it also mentions a USB port, which might surprise many. Apparently the iPad 2's Retina Display will not have as high a pixel density as the iPhone 4’s.

      I can't see the benefits of only releasing it in America before everywhere else. Does anyone have any idea why they would do this?.

      supply and demand. Also, the whole apple exclusive for 6 months thing...is BS. I hate apple care and prefer best buys warranty that protects against EVERYTHING.

      It's a bit academic anyhow - there will be plenty of grey imports available in the UK at least, and I've never heard of an apple store in the UK turning anyone away if presented with a grey for warranty work. That said, it is a little annoying - but there were markets that only got the 1st Gen iPad a few months back.

      Slightly ironic though that the London has the largest Apple store in the world, yet it sometimes feels like were second class customers when it comes to new hardware being released!

      How about the RAM memory size? Can we count on at least a 512MB RAM space? I am having some problems with large photos in RAW format using piRAWnha to work on large [30MB] RAW Canon files.

      Just a way to pace sales down to production output levels, really...
