oh god, oh GOD! I DON'T CARE!!

this is like the eleventh site today!

and the worst part?

even if I WAS an apple fanboy, or investor, its not even NEWS!

NEWS would be that they WEREN'T going to refresh the product every year like they have with every other iDevice!

Ooooo - Chinese New Year is in February. Virtually every manufacturing plant in China & Taiwan will shut down for at least a week. I hope Apple got their POs in nice and early!

I'm guessing there won't be any surprises in this one. It's not likely Apple will suddenly provide USB support, HDMI output, changable battery or any of the stuff that would really make it a sellable product to anyone but hardcore Apple fans.

Remember that according to several surveys 95% of all iPad buyers already have at least one Apple product, that won't change with a second version unless they completely shift gears so they're still just cannibalizing on the same user base.

It's highly unlikely Apple will give any of those things. Remember, the lack of these things is actually a feature to Apple...

Yes it's a no-brainer. Apple released the iPad in January. January is coming up.

In other news, tomorrow will come for Planet Earth.

If foxconn = suicide of workers
than you are going to have to ban more than Apple because Foxconn makes motherboards etc for a lot of the other major brands as well...

The new TI OMAP4440 - dual core 1.5GHz Cortex A9 and SGX 540 GPU - is on its way. Does Apple have anything even remotely close to that planned for the iPad 2? If not, all that's needed is a little software refinement on Google's side and there will be a new daddy in town, because these guys are hardly going to price themselves above the iPad 2 if they've got any sense, and as we know, Apple's pricing is hardly competitive.
