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.
