Latest iPad 2 Rumors Say: Kindle-like Anti-reflection Screen, Thinner, Dual-core Processor, 3 Connectivity Options

Ming-Chi Kuo of Concord Securities released a note to investors today detailing his ideas on the iPad 2′s components. The analyst seems to agree with 9to5mac‘s findings in the SDK and is claiming the iPad 2 will keep the iPad 1′s 1024 x 768 display, but will introduce some improvements like a thinner panel and Kindle-like anti-reflection.

That’s a slice from a report at 9to5Mac yesterday on the latest iPad 2 rumored specs. The same report also says that the next gen iPad will:

  • Have a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor
  • Offer three connectivity options – WiFi, WiFi + GSM (for AT&T and others), and CDMA (for Verizon and others)
  • Have a front camera ‘that’s a 0.3 megapixel VGA shooter and a back camera that’s a 1 megapixel lens’

The above points match 9to5Mac’s findings when digging through the iOS 4.3 SDK.

All of this sounds good to me. The anti-reflective display would be a big plus, the rest is pretty much inline with what we’ve been hearing for a while now about the iPad 2. I really want to know about how much RAM the iPad 2 will have – I think 512MB is a minimum and hope we’ll see 1GB.
