The clever guys over at Boy Genius Report have got a good post up today detailing some of the latest iPad 2 rumors from DigiTimes. There’s talk about which connectivity options it will have and about when shipping to Apple will begin, as we’ve seen a lot of over the last few weeks. More interestingly, there is BGR’s rundown of what they feel are the most solid iPad 2 rumors so far:
- Slightly thinner bezel
- Slightly thinner body, tapered edges, flat back
- Front and rear cameras
- Better anti-smudge and anti-glare screen
- Possibly a dual core 1GHz CPU
- 512MB of RAM
- Redesigned rear speaker, volume buttons
- Verizon CDMA unit
If that list turns out to be mostly accurate, I’d be mostly happy. I’d definitely like to see a dual-core processor and the two cameras. I also like the idea of a flat back and love the idea of a better anti-smudge and anti-glare screen. The 512MB of RAM would be disappointing – I’d like to see 1GB.
What do you all think of the ‘solid rumor’ list? If it proves mostly true, would you be happy / interested in getting the next gen iPad?
