An iPad 2 prototype was spotted at the launch of the digital newspaper, The Daily yesterday. The global news agency Reuters has reported that the prototype of the second generation was carried at the launch. Apparently, according to the eye witness, the prototype was a working one and it also possesses a front camera. If the news is to be believed, it is evident that Apple would be launching the successor with the capacity to make video calls and video chat.
As of now there has been no official comment about the same from either the News Corp. who launched the digital paper or from Apple Inc. itself. As of now, we know that Apple is intensely trying to thin the iPad 2, so that it gets light, but also it does not want to compromise on the robustness.
