iPad2 Rumor Bingo Card

 

Word is coming out that in the UK carriers are dropping prices of the iPad - implying the iPad 2 is right around the corner.  Plus you know the iPad2 is right around the corner.  This means it is time for the iPad2 rumor bingo card.  There have been a lot of different rumors about the iPad2 - some going back to right after the iPad launched.  The Bingo card above shows many of these rumors.  Some will likely be spot on - most will miss the mark - others are just silly.  Per my thoughts on those above:

 

Likely:

Front Facing Camera

1.2 GHz Dual Core Processor

Gyroscope

Rear Facing 5 MP Camera

Larger Rear Speaker

Finger Print Resistant Display

Same 1024 x 768 IPS Display

Thinner Not as Reflective Display

Lighter Poly Carb Case

Verizon CDMA 3G Version

 

Maybe:

128 GB storage on Top End

Near Field Communication (NFC)

2nd Landscape Mode Dock Connector

1 GB RAM

$399 for Lowest end iPad

 

Long Shot:

2048 x 1536 "Retina Display"

512 MB RAM

 

No Chance:

No More WiFi only iPads

SD Card Slot

Rear Facing 3 MP Camera

Rear Facing 1 MP Camera

7" Version

USB Port

No Home Button

  • Out of all the rumors, the one I want to be true the most is the higher resolution display. This is the only upgrade that would convince me to upgrade my iPad1 to an iPad2. However I agree with all the pundits that it is unlikely. The technology just doesn't seem to be there yet. :( Is Jobs doing the presentation? If he doesn't, it just won't be the same.

  • NFC as a maybe?... What would it be used for? I can comprehend it going in to the iPhone 5 if they can pull off a good e-wallet solution, but I just can't imagine what use it would have on an iPad. What were your thoughts when you put it as 'maybe' and not 'long shot'? Do you have some other use in mind?

  • My thoughts on the 512 MB ram vs 1GB RAM is that either could happen. But I felt 1GB was more likely than 512 MB - it just did not seem I could put either in Likely - and putting both in Maybe seemed odd as well. One of the two will likely happen - just not that I did not feel as confident with either as I do with the others in the likely category. But if you wanted me to pick one over the other - as I said above it would be the 1GB option.

  • $399 lower price point would be a nice addition, especially if non-early adopters start buying up the 1st gen iPads. Anything that addresses glare short fall. I think your other long-shots and no chance bets are probably right on track.

  • Why do you say 512 ram is a long shot? Seems like it should have it.

  • Well I will be waiting for my iPad. Hope your right rob. Only reason I haven't bought one yet is the glare. Aaron
