Successor to the super-popular tablet to be showcased next month?

According to a new rumor, Apple is all set to unveil the sequel to the super-selling iPad tablet come next month.

Kevin Rose is reporting that the Cupertino-giant will announce the iPad 2 on February 1, 2011, which will have a ‘higher dpi’ screen but not the retina display as had been rumored, and hoped, before.

“I have it on good authority that Apple will be announcing the iPad 2 in the next “3-4 weeks”, possibly Tuesday February 1st.

If you’re thinking of buying an iPad, hold off for now.


The iPad 2 is also rumored to be slightly slimmer, have improved battery life, dual cameras with Facetime support, 3-axis gyroscope, and a USB port.
