Rumors surrounding the second-generation iPad’s introduction are now hotting up, and despite a rumor surfacing earlier today which suggested the device would be delayed until June due to production issues, and then a number of other sources seemingly debunking this, 9to5Mac reports that their sources have confirmed that iPad 2 will be announced within 7-14 days.
Interesting to note is that, that timescale appears to match up perfectly with the current rumored date for Apple’s March 2 media event. They also claim the device will be available to buy from stores sometime around late March.
Sources have confirmed to us that the second generation iPad will be announced in the next 7-14 days (backs up the rumored March 2nd date) and will be available towards the end of March. This will fit perfectly with Apple’s usual annual update for iOS products.
The new iPad is rumored to include a front-facing video camera for FaceTime video chat in addition to a rear-facing camera for FaceTime and taking both pictures and video. This rear camera may be one megapixel and will shoot video in full 720p HD. The new iPad is also rumored to include a faster processor, more RAM, and adopt and thinner and lighter design.
