In just a few hours at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, Apple will unveil a new generation of iPads. What will it look like? According to this image of the alleged device, which some tech bloggers are calling fake, the iPad 2 will boast a squarer shape and a camera.
The New York Times reports:
According to a number of reports, the new iPad is expected to be thinner than the current model, which will likely cut its weight. This will be a big draw for customers who are contemplating buying a new e-book reader, but are intimidated by the current iPad’s 1.5 pound weight.
The next iPad is widely believed to have a built-in camera, but some say it will have two cameras — one in the front for video chats and another in the back for still pictures. This setup would be similar to the one in the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch.
Ideally, however, the new iPad would come equipped with a pullout keyboard and closing lid. Now that would be convenient.
Last quarter, the iPad accounted for 17% of the company's overall revenue. More than 100 competing tablets are either in development or available now.
We'll update as soon as the (big?) announcement is made at around 10 a.m. PST.
