The Apple iPad 2 could be available as early as February 2011 according to the latest rumours. The iPad 2 is most likely going to be available for the first quarter of 2011 however this is not official confirmation.
This release date would annoy other tablets as they will have a second generation device already before theirs has had time to get off the mark. If it is a February release date than it will be release just before the Blackberry Playbook, that is set for March 2011. It would also have implications for consumers. The iPad will be on many Christmas lists but if there is a better model being released only months after that this will be very frustrating for those who have bought it for Christmas so is it the best time for it to be released?
What difference would the iPad and the iPad 2 have. A main difference is that the iPad 2 will be equipped with a USB port. Another possible new feature is front and back camera which can be used for conference calling, video chat and FaceTime. A sharper screen and quicker processor are also likely to be incorporated.
