If the rumor is to be believed, Apple will be unveiling the successor to iPad at a special media event next week. The rumor has been reported by Macnotes.de and they have kept thier sources’ names under cover making it difficult for one to believe if the rumor is indeed true. But, just to brighten things up, it has always been a tactic of Apple to maintain absolute secrecy about any upcoming products and of theirs and their successors. So, iPad 2 may just be around the corner.
Also, keeping the past in mind, Apple unveiled its iPhone to public eye five months before its actual market release and the iPad three months prior to its release. But, when Apple launched the first generation of any of its products, there was no competition whatsoever. Things are a bit different now, which makes the rumor even more believable.
