    The white band on the back for 3G is so ugly! Hope this isn't true..

    Looks semi believable but it's not running iOS. At least not in its current form. Check out the status bar.

    Hmmm

    Camera not centered (that or the clock isn't centered). I think it looks nice, I'm down to buy. :apple:

    It's a dummy screen by the look of it. Looks like a paper insert to me.

    They do suggest that it's just a mock-up.

    The text also looks wrong, and there is no "iPad" in the top left. Also, the screen looks crooked. Very odd.

    Edit: Yeah, nomad01 is probably right. Paper insert.

    Can't believe no-one's complained about the recessed head phone jack yet.

    The physical appearance is fine - tablets are pretty hard to differentiate. More interested to see what hardware changes there are internally and what they manage to do with the OS. I think we are going to see a 4.4 release with some iPad specific changes and some (long overdue) improved MobileMe integration.

    Doesn't mean it's fake. As Engadget says:

    Could just be a placeholder but the real iPad 2? I'm not having it.

    The angled dock port also looks like it's too deeply recessed for it to work with any current accessories.

    yeah, i'm not digging the angled edges. :( maybe i won't be as excited if this is the new look. i sure hope the internals make up for it.

    Didn't the EDGE iPhone have problems with fitting certain head phone jacks because of the same reason? C'mon Apple!
