The show floors of CES this year seem to be filled with iPad 2 mock-ups being used to showcase new docking and speaker systems, as well as new cases.
Here’s another one that iLounge, who write:
The shell, which has been marked by developer Gopod Mobile with “iPad 2” and “128GB” logos that would not appear on the actual device, is being shown paired with an iPad 2-specific foldable rechargeable battery pack developed by the company, and depicts the revised device’s redesigned curves, ports, and cameras; it is said by Gopod to represent the actual appearance of the as-yet-unreleased thinner and slightly smaller iPad.
I’m starting to think this actually will be the design of the next iPad: Asian case and dock makers seem uniform in their agreement that the rumors of a slimmer iPad with FaceTime, a back speaker and new ports are true. You’d expect there to be more variation, more disagreement if the rumors we’ve heard about the iPad 2 were completely unfounded.Related
