iPad vs iPad 2. Round 1, Fight!

There’s no stopping the iPad 2 now. Although we’ve been allured with all the glitz and glamor of the shiny new Apple tablet Steve Jobs has unveiled over at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco, we now go underneath it all and check if the iPad 2 is a worthy heir to the iPad. And yes, we’re a tad disappointed that the LCD resolution didn’t get the upgrade it deserves, the iPad 2 still has some pretty decent bumps including a wicked 1GHz dual-core plus a sleeker and lighter design.

Hit the break for a comparision of the specs!

Is this the iPad 2 we've all been waiting for?

We can almost smell the iPad 2 around the corner as Apple makes its big reveal today, but Chinese website DGtle certainly didn’t bother waiting any longer as they reveal pictures of an iPad 2 mock-up that looks too real to be fake. Assuming that it’s not fake, it seems the iPad 2 is going to be thinner with a little more flattened back compared to its predecessor. It will also wield two cameras (front and rear) and reportedly a white 3G antenna at the back. The mock-up is reported to have been used for case makers. We can only confirm if it is the iPad 2 and not just a placeholder when we lay our eyes on the device at Apple event.

But practicality demands a little more humility for the successor of the highly successful iPad tablet as recent reports suggest that the iPad 2 will be a thinner but more powerful model of the iPad. The tablet will equip one of Qualcomm’s multimode chips and will run on both GSM and CDMA-based networks; it will also have a front-facing camera plus a Facetime video chat support.

iPad 2 is going to be bigger and better, or atleast that's what the rumors are leading to.

We’re pretty sure Apple fans are tingling with joy at the moment. Thanks to AppleInsider and MIC Gadget, the world now lays its eyes on these iPad 2 case photographs. Reported that the cases were probably manufactured in China, the iPad 2 case indicated that we may be having a tablet with a rear-facing camera, an SD card slot, and a mysterious opening at the top that is rumored to be a Mini DisplayPort.

Why do we need a Mini DisplayPort in the first place? AppleInsider states that the port might be used to “support full resolution monitor like the Apple 27-inch LED display” and would “enable iPad 2 to be used as a very high resolution external display by any Mac with mini DisplayPort output.”
