"I have it on good authority that Apple will be announcing the iPad 2 in the next “3-4 weeks”, possibly Tuesday February 1st. The iPad 2 will feature a retina display and front/back cameras." ---Kevin Rose

Kevin Rose, one of the industry’s prominent blogger, claimed today that iPad 2 will be landing in “3-4 weeks” and will feature a Retina Display in addition to dual cameras.

“I have it on good authority that Apple will be announcing the iPad 2 in the next “3-4 weeks”, possibly Tuesday February 1st. The iPad 2 will feature a retina display and front/back cameras.”

Apple doing a double on pixels of the iPad would make the iPad 2 screen bigger. The previous pixel count is 1024 x 768; now it is 2048 x 1536, quite a big push. The resolution seems to be a bit too high for a 9.7 inch display.

Update: Rose updated his blog post to say it’s not a Retina Display but instead is higher resolution screen with more dots per inch (DPI).

What does it offer? Hmmm… a good iPad stand that tilts on 18 or 45 degrees angle even, with or without case, plus a built in 40watt rechargable lithium ion battery that will extend your iPad life into 16 full hours.
