iPad 2 in 3-4 weeks?

John Moe Jan 10, 2011

We reported last week that Apple employees were told they couldn’t take vacation in late January or early February. I assumed that was for the imminent Verizon iPhone but there could be more to it. Digg founder Kevin Rose is claiming that he has it on good authority that the new iPad will be announced within three to four weeks. Some blogs are even predicting a February 1st arrival date. Rose goes along with the crowd and says it will have a front and back camera although he ups the ante by claiming it will have retina display too (the super high res display from the iPhone 4).
