Kevin Rose, the founder of Digg.com, has been the source of a number of Apple related rumors in the past – most notably, during the iPod 2008 media event. Rose’s latest revelation could however be his biggest crack if it turns out to be true. In a recent post, Rose has noted that the next generation of iPad could launch as early as in the next 3-4 weeks. Citing sources “on good authority“, Rose says that an Apple announcement in this regard is most likely on Tuesday, February 1.
His revelation is also replete with a number of rumored features that the iPad 2 could come equipped with. These include a possible retina display and two cameras – one on the front and another on the rear side of the iPad. These revelations are quite interesting considering a retina display could spike the manufacturing cost by a huge margin. Rose has however clarified that the iPad display resolution may not be as high as that on the iPhone 4.
It will be interesting to see what comes of this latest rumor.
