Today continued to paint a picture of the new iPad 2 in Canada as technology blogs are discussing the possibilities that Apple will announce the second-gen iPad 2 within the next month in Canada.
Kevin Rose, the founder of Digg, believes based on reliable information that this release is imminent:
I have it on good authority that Apple will be announcing the iPad 2 in the next "3-4 weeks", possibly Tuesday February 1st. The iPad 2 will feature a retina display and front/back cameras.
There seems to be uncertainty on the details of the display, some sources believe that the screen will not be a "Retina" display like that on the iPhone 4 and newest iPod touch. Many people say it would be difficult to drive a retina display that big on smaller graphics hardware.
Either way the next iPad seems to be the perfect tool for augmented reality type web apps like Yelp. Also I'm really excited to see if iMovie becomes any more useful; its pretty hard to trim clips considering the iPhone's small footprint.
Details about the original iPad are still seen on the official iPad website, but this site may change once the device is released.
