    Sorry if it's not exactly news.

    Skeptic? Well, here's what they say:

    It'd be funny if it had just been an iPad 2.

    Exactly what I've been thinking lol. That's why I added 'rumor'.

    No images to back up the camera claim as well... So yeah, it may be possible

    Wouldn't an "iPad 2 successor" be the iPad 3? Why not call it that then? Was there an iPad 1S?

    There was debate whether it should be iPad 3 or iPad 2S. So I just went with 'successor'.

    Apple's got a problem while naming their products. IPad 2S sounds too lame to be true (no creativity at all).

    Yeah. I didn't expect an iPhone '4S' as well but it did come out.

    Who knows what will be the name.

    *GASP!* Apple reveals a new revision of their hardware the moment their entire fanbase switched from iOlderDevice to iSlightlyNewerDevice to innitiate another switch, this time to the iNewDevice while it is likely that they are working on an iDeviceThatWillBeNewNextYear!

    I would've never guessed after the iPhone (February 5, 2008), iPhone 3G (July 11, 2008), iPhone 3GS (June 19, 2009), iPhone 4 (June 21, 2010) and iPhone 4S (October 14, 2011).

    Guys, this is more about the device itself than the fact that it exists. No fucking DUH there's going to be an ipad 2, but the details are not a "duh" part, and the shell of a device can often tell us in advance about the capabilities of it.

    This is about an actual happening. This is a thread where somebody reported seeing a new hardware model. The hardware model is something that seems to actually exist. In fact there's pictures. This is actual news because it's about a happening.

    The stuff you tend to post is just editorial articles more fit for the discussion forum, because they're not about anything concrete happening, just personal guesses by internet people about the future.

    I was focusing on the "knowing life it's going to be a rather minor update judging from the fact that Apple releases minor tweaks periodically" aspect.

    Oh boy, another iPad. It's going to take a lot from Apple to convince me, and by a lot, I mean "Turn my room into a working holodeck with the press of a button."

    Seriously though, whatever company does that first can take my money. Get on it!
