IPAD 2 COMING IN THREE TO FOUR WEEKS

The next version of the iPad will be here in three or four weeks, possibly Tuesday, February 1.

So says Kevin Rose, founder of Digg.com, whose new newsletter, Foundat.io/n just broke the story. The iPad 2 will feature a retina display and front/back cameras, just like the iPhone 4.

The front/back cameras allow real time video chatting. The “retina display” means the pixel density is so high, your eye is unable to distinguish individual pixels. Everything is sharper.

The newsletter Foundat.io/n costs $4 a month, though the posted articles will appear for free on the website Revision 3, a week or so later. More info at KevinRose.com.

  1. Kevin Rose has amended his prediction regarding the retinal display. For the iPad to have the same sharpness as an iPhone, it would need a 2560 x 1920 resolution, which isn’t feasible. The iPad 2 will have more pixels per inch, but not to the same extent as the retinal display. http://tcrn.ch/hlFown
