    iLounge reports on several items of interest in light of today's MacBook Pro and iPad news, most notably claiming that some questions have arisen about just what Apple will be able to show at next week's iPad media event and when a true "second-generation" iPad will become available.
    The report lends credence to a theory put forth by Daring Fireball's John Gruber several weeks ago stating that Apple could release another new version of the iPad as soon as September. iLounge's report takes the angle that Apple could be preparing to release something that could be more accurately considered an "iPad 1.5" with a camera and other tweaks to carry consumers through to a more substantial upgrade later this year.
    iLounge acknowledges that the claims are somewhat difficult to believe given the high visibility of next week's iPad event and the steady stream of rumors that have been steadily (until recently) pointing to a March/April timeline for a revamped tablet device, but Apple may in fact be feeling pressure to do something to keep iPad sales moving as it continues to prepare what it had originally envisioned as its second-generation iPad for a release later this year.

    Today's report also notes that the MacBook Pro update coming tomorrow is clearly more of a refresh of Apple's existing MacBook Pro lines, and that a significant redesign, which Apple generally undertakes every few generations, is on tap for 2012 and currently in the design phase.

    Finally, Apple is said to be set to introduce the fifth-generation iPhone in June as expected. The report says that "worldwide shipments" would occur by August at the latest, with the U.S. and other major markets for the company almost certainly at the head of the rollout plan.

    Okay, no way in hell Apple is writing "iPad 2" on the back of their device. Fake.
    Lets just stick to the usual cycle please :)

    Is it just me, or does the speculated iPad 2 mockup actually look kinda retro next to the iPad 1? The iPad2 case shapes indicate the rounded edges which seem more in line with iPhone 1/3G designs, while the iPad 1 design seems more in line with the newer design trends coming out of apple.

    Just an observation. Maybe all the 'leaked' cases have been misinformation! Unlikely I know, but worth a shot.

    ipad 2 mockup horrid

    Is it just me or do other people find the new beveled edge of the iPad a lot less attractive than the current curved design?
    :confused:

    Minor updates to the MacBook Pro line?

    Thank you very much, I'll just stick to Windows for the next 4 years..

    Huge disappointment, as it would be my first macbook.

    why do people report garbage?

    the ipad 3 is NOT coming later this year. there were rumors that said the iPad 2 was pushed back to june.. today's announcement puts that trash of news to bed... what are we, supposed to wait till new years eve to find out that the iPad 3 really isn't coming later this year? stupidness.. Apple has given no indication that this will be the case. ipods, iphones, and now ipads are on a yearly cycle.

    Hopefully it does have the flattened back. I don't prefer the "turtle back" of current gen. Although it is nice for playing "spin-the-bottle".

    Looks like it might be a better decision to stick with my Late 2008 Uni-body MBP and hold out till 2012. From the looks of things, my MBP is about just as fast and almost just as good as the ones coming out tomorrow.

    ..Time will tell though.
