    Just some part of a standard chip set, I would expect.

    It's v likely it'll have a compass Feature (either app or feature within maps) but that doesn't necessarily mean they won't update the hardware that does it. I didn't know wiki had a list of upcoming chips being used for the iPad - whilst some have been rumored - have you got a link to one saying it'll be the same version chip as the iPhone currently?
