Apple to Announce the iPad 2 on February 9th





ipad 2 release

An image found in the iOS 4.3 beta 2 reveals not only icons of FaceTime, Photo Booth and Camera applications but also indicates a day when the rumored iPad 2 may be announced. If you take a look at the image above, you may notice that the left iPad wallpaper has a 27 on the Calendar app icon. That’s because the first-generation iPad was released on January 27, 2010. When looking at the preview for a chosen background in iOS 4.3 beta 2 you can see that the calendar-icon shows a 9. Someone believes that this is clear evidence confirming that the iPad 2 will be unveiled on February 9, 2011. It is possible that this could be the 9th of a more distant month.

FaceTime, Camera and PhotoBooth Icons Confirm Camera in iPad 2



iOS4.3apps

Apple's developer release of iOS 4.3 Beta 2 includes the three new app icons. This includes FaceTime, Camera and Photo Booth. The images were found in the latest beta and are used by iOS to show a preview of your wallpaper selection. These icons do not exist on the images contained in iOS 4.2. Such icons might be new evidence confirming that the next iPad will carry both a front facing and rear facing camera as well as the Apple Camera App and Photo Booth App.

Parts supplier selling purported iPad 2 screen, iPad vibrating motor



ipad2parts

One parts supplier began selling the screen part for Apple's next-generation iPad from Globaldirectparts.com. The part listed is the "iPad 2 LCD Screen" which is "out of stock" but is listed for a price of $218.19. Since the website currently offers replacement screens for the original iPad for $63.35, the higher price of the so-called "iPad 2 screen" could possibly corroborate reports of a 2048x1536 resolution display on the second-generation tablet. Globaldirectparts.com is also selling an "OEM Apple iPad Vibrating Motor" for $9.99. No photo is provided, but it's a curious part since the iPad currently has no vibrating motor. It's possible this is simply a mislabeled iPhone part, but does raise the possibility of the feature making its way into the next iPad. The part may be evidence that Apple is working on vibrating alert functionality for the second-generation iPad.

Controversial Steve Jobs figurine appears to sell for $2,500 on eBay



jobs figure

Although Apple blocked the producer of a lifelike action figure of Apple CEO Steve Jobs from selling it, one of the figures was sold for $2,500 on eBay. In November the producer quickly sold out the initial run of 300 limited edition figures. Some days later Apple sent a cease-and-desist email to the website, citing California Civil Code Section 3344, "which prohibits the use of any person’s name, photograph or likeness in a product without that person’s prior consent." Now we see that one of the figures was listed for sale for a starting price of $1,000, but eventually sold for the $2,500.

Verizon's ad got an iPhone instead of Droid X



verison-droidx-iphone

Verizon is good at Photoshop. But their dream of getting an iPhone is too big. This ended up to a funny misstake. Their Motorola Droid X ad actually has an iPhone screen display with Google Maps running. Motorola is not going to be pleased about this :)

Apple Kills The Steve Jobs Action Figure



steve figure

Mic Gadget posted some shots of pretty cute and realistic Steve Job's action figure which is little bit taller than an iPhone 4. Artificial Apple CEO is dressed in his blue Levi jeans and black turtleneck and looks almost like its prototype. I bet it would be a best-seller. Unfortunately, it will never see the light. A law firm representing Apple’s interests sent the following letter to Mic Garden:
