Obviously no one will know for sure until Friday. I was hoping some expert could speculate as to IPAD 2 ability to play HD mkv (via apps like VLC, Buzz) due to the new IPAD's dual core chip and upgraded graphics? This would be a huge deal for me (Although I'm getting the new one regardless), if it did support these videos I will get the 64gb as opposed to 32 or 16. The ipad could not play MKV, avi files over 720x576. I did not know if this was a hardware limitation or an IOS limitation. Thanks!
