The iPad 2 is rumored to be released in the market this coming holiday seasons. Traditionally, Apple has its products in the market for around one year before coming up with an update. But this time things are going differently. Apple might have the feeling that it needs to upgrade the iPad without waiting for the 12-month cycle especially at this time where a lot of manufacturers are getting into the tablet market and tries to come up with a tablet that could surpass the quality and features offered by the iPad.

According to a newspaper, the iPad 2 is already on the advanced testing stage and is being assembled by a Taiwanese company named Chimei Innolux, which has won a number of contracts for the iPad2. Some rumors say that the upcoming iPad2 will be sporting a smaller display screen, which is around 7 inches only in order to make it more competitive when it comes to price and compete with the Amazon Kindle in terms of size and price point.

Some reports also revealed that its touchscreen technology will be coming from Cando Corporation. Compal Electronics was also rumored to be the one to assemble the iPad 2. However, neither one of these companies made a confirmation that the rumors are true and that they are currently working on the iPad 2.

The iPad 2 is expected to have the same aluminum back, same bezel, similar weight as well as battery life. In addition to this, the IPS technology featured in the current iPad will also be included in this next generation iPad device.

Basically the new iPad 2 is believed to come up with the following changes:

  • New screen resolution
  • Inclusion of Apple’s FaceTime
  • A new form factor

As mentioned earlier, Apple is targeting the release of the iPad 2 this holiday seasons, which seems to be a very ideal time for its release. Price is also expected to be more competitive since they target more potential customers as well. As Steve Jobs loves to say recently. ”We’re releasing the next iPad today before our competitors have even caught up with the first generation.” What a brilliant plan isn’t it?

    I’m very disappointed that the second generation iPad will not have a USB port. My guess is that if it’s not in this version it won’t ever be on any of them.

    Hopefully the IPad 2nd Gen. comes out soon. I’m so close to buying the Samsung Galaxy, but I want to see what the 2nd Gen. IPad is capable of before I make a decision.

    The first iPad was a bombination and so will be this one, I am now convinced not to buy the second version. I can already tell I will be buying a different tablet, not some half breed.

    iPad 2 is a winner. And I’m not a Apple fanboy.
