Kevin Rose, the founder of popular link sharing site Digg has posted on his blog that Apple is going to announce the much awaited iPad 2 within next 3-4 weeks.
The iPad 2 display has a “higher dpi” (more dots per inches) instead of retina display, another source of Kevin Rose claims.
From: Kevin Rose (Foundation Newsletter)
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.
If you’re thinking of buying an iPad, hold off for now.
UPDATE: Spoke w/another source, the display has a “higher dpi”, but not technically a retina display. This seems odd to me, we’ll have to wait and see..
According to another report posted on BGR, Apple has blacked out employee vacations requests between February 3rd and February 6th.
So if we correlate that report with the news shared by Kevin Rose, it seems that Apple may introduce iPad 2 on February 1st and the pre-orders for the device may start from February 3rd.
