New iPad hiding in plain site?
There is a very interesting rumor floating around. iLounge reports that it was able to get hands on the iPad that will be launching soon. The alleged groping happened the day before CES kicks off and according to the publication, the geek standing next to you at a booth could be using the new iPad and you might not even know.
The new iPad and the iPad 2 on the market already are said to be virtually identical. The new iPad is a bit thicker to the tune of a scant 1mm thanks to the reported dual LED light bar that the higher resolution screen uses. The rear camera is also said to be different.
The camera is the same unit minus the flash LEDs that the iPhone 4S uses according to iLounge. On the front, the screen is the dead give away with its much higher resolution. This is interesting to me, the person that held the device says that most cases and accessories for the iPad 2 will work on the new iPad thanks to the scant extra millimeter of thickness.
