    SuperRumor: iPad 3 in 2011?

    As of yet, there is no hard evidence to support this theory whatsoever, but it's just sneaky and daring enough that we wouldn't rule it out of Apple's playbook: Blogger John Gruber speculates that in the fall of 2011, Apple could release an "iPad 3" or at least an "iPad 2.5" hot on the heels of its as-yet-not-even-announced iPad 2 this spring. Gruber, known for his connections within Apple and his habit of sometimes serving as a cipher for the company, stresses that this is purely his guess. One mystery this would appealingly resolve is the conflict between reports that the iPad 2 would have a so-called "retina display" and analyses debunking this:

    How could Apple release a third-generation iPad just six months or so after the second one? Maybe it won’t be an actual next generation model. Maybe it’s more like an iPad 2.5, or iPad 2 Pro — a new higher-end model that sits atop the iPad product family, not a replacement for the iPad 2 models (which, of course, haven’t even been released yet). Or: an iPad 2 HD. What if that’s the source of the conflicting reports of a retina display next-gen iPad? I am nearly dead certain the iPad 2 is going to have the same display resolution and size as the current iPad. I am not so sure at all, though, that there won’t be a double-resolution 2048 × 1536 iPad in 2011. Is that a technically aggressive release schedule? Absolutely. But Apple has invested $4 billion on some sort of unspecified components for future products.
    Either way, it's a step up from the mucus-secreting new MacBook Pro. (Daring Fireball via TechCrunch)

    Report: iPad 2 Will Have Front- and Rear-Facing Cameras

    Citing multiple sources, Reuters reports that the iPad 2 -- which hilarious-though-sometimes-accurate rumormongers DigiTimes reports will ship in February of 2011 for an April launch -- will have both front- and rear-facing cameras, sourced by Genius Electronic Optical Co Ltd and Largan Precision Co Ltd. You may recall that a teardown of this generation's iPad revealed that it has a slot in the frame that perfectly fits the camera from a unibody MacBook Pro, which Apple evilly didn't include in this generation for whatever reason. Cameras would allow videochat applications such as Apple's FaceTime and augmented reality apps for the iPad. Reuters' sources also say, in accordance with other iPad 2 rumors we've heard, that the "new model would be slimmer, lighter and have a better resolution display." Man, if all of these iPad 2 reports are true -- they jibe with Apple's past product release strategy, but we'd still put them in the 'interesting rumor category' for now -- a bunch of people who got iPads for Christmas or Hanukkah this year are going to be annoyed.
