Here is a iPad 2 photo gallery. These photos were published Chinese site. We don't know if it's a real iPad 2. Let's take a look:
There are lots of rumors about forthcoming second-gen iPad hardware. The iPad 2 is expected to be slimmer and lighter, with a larger speaker and an improved display designed to deliver a better experience in bright sunlight. It will likely run on a 1.2GHz, dual-core, ARM Cortex-A9 chip and Imagination’s SGX543 GPU architecture. The new iPad probably will support both GSM and CDMA thank to the Qualcomm chip. It will have double the RAM–512MB, same as the iPhone 4, as well as front camera for FaceTime and Photo Booth and back-facing one for POV FaceTime and shooting photos and video.
Alongside the new iPad Apple may also announce iOS 5 preview at the event. iOS 5 is expected to have new voice navigation, maps application and certainly Cloud/MobileMe/iWork/iLife integration, and updated notifications.
There were nice rumors showing future iPhone 5 bazel. The photo claimed new iPhone 5 display will be larger and the edge of the bazel will be thinner. Unfortunately this photo was fake.
Nowhereelse.fr has done some analysis on the image finding replication of artifacts and incorrect lines of perspective:
Photos of what appears to be a white bezel for the future iPad 2 have been leaked online by 9to5Mac and iFixYouri. Sounds like iPad 2 will be available in white. Current iPad case is made of aluminum, but the front color is black (display and bezel).
The piece that we have (from Shenzhen City), thanks to the folks at the iFixYouri iPhone repair shop, is the "digitizer" sometimes known as the the thick bezel.
Apple is holding a special event on March 2nd at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts at 10:00am local time where they will likely reveal the new iPad 2. The iPad 2 is expected to be thinner, faster, have a camera or even two, work on both GSM and CDMA networks.
Chinese reseller of Apple parts iDealsChina posted a shot depicting a front bezel of what is claimed to be an "iPhone 5" part. The front panel shows a bigger display that reduces the size of the bezels, especially at the sides. iDealsChina writes:
China’s 1st iPhone 5 photo has surfaced! From this photo it seems that the screen size will be larger than iPhone 4. There has been a lot of speculation about a larger screen and maybe this will be one of the upgrades we will see when iPhone 5 is released this summer.
15-inch MacBook Pro: this model comes with Quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 4GB RAM and Intel HD Graphics 3000 + AMD Radeon HD 6000M graphics. The graphics switching will work exactly like the previous models - it automatically switches between the GPU and IGP depending on what you're doing.

As you may know, today Apple unveils its new lineup of MacBook Pros and has already shut down the Apple Store for some time. CNet reports the launch of new laptops will come "shortly after Intel's announcement" of its new Light Peak technology at 10 a.m. Pacific. That actually break's usual practice of Apple to release products at 8:30 a.m. Eastern.
However, before Apple unveils new MacBook Pro we decided to collect all the information gathered about new laptops into one single post so you could know what you can expect from today's announcement.

Today Apple should start delivering its sealed product line of MacBooks Pro to brick-and-mortar stores of its largest European resellers, according to the information sent by the company to those resellers last weekend.
But February, 21st is also a President's Day in the US, and Apple has been avoiding launching major products on federal holidays, so the partners were told that an official announcement will follow shortly after shipments will be delivered, according to AppleInsider that in turn cites a person familiar with the matter. It was also reported that Apple has vocalized its right to cancel reseller licenses from those dealers who will tamper with the sealed shipment before the announcement will be made.

One more creative photo of possible iPhone Nano or iPhone Mini. Similar fashion to existing iPhone 4, with 3.5-inch screen extended to the left/right edges. This image looks like a "spy" shot, but we believe is just another creative mockup.
This is not real, but just a nice beautiful concept photo of future iPhone Nano.
Here's another one:
As you may remember, this week Bloomberg reported about the fact that Apple is working on a new iPhone with a 2.3" screen. Today this information was also confirmed by the Wall Street Journal.
"One of the people, who saw a prototype of the phone late last year, said the device is intended for sale alongside Apple's existing line. The new device would be about half the size of the iPhone 4, which is the current model. The new phone would be available to carriers at about half the price of the main iPhone repertoire. "
The latter allows to suggest that this summer we'll see iPhone 5 at usual price of $199/$299, discounted iPhone 4 at $99, and iPhone Nano at $49.

Last week Apple launched the first Mac App Store section: Personal Projects, in which it displays apps for a specific creative audience. There are apps for musicians, designers, photographers and video editors to organize their projects and ideas at home. Now there are only five apps featured in each of four categories (covering things from design to music and photography). It looks like Apple had trouble finding enough quality apps to fill the space.
Macotakara, Japanese blog, reports that Apple is planning to conduct a smaller than usual event to launch the next generation iPad. The site thinks that such event appears to be on track for March. It is believed that the device may only see an announcement during that time frame in the United States Shipments and international availability possibly will follow at a later date. Moreover, the site posted one more exclusive photo of the second generation iPad display (see above).
Concord Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has recently released another report, where he states that the next-gen iPad won't get new resolution this year.
"The most important reason why iPad 2 won’t have retinal display is yield rate of panel making. At this point, making high resolution and bright IPS/FFS panel is not easy and the production volume and cost couldn’t meet Apple’s requirements."
Last week Toshiba introduced a new 1.8-inch hard drive. The highest capacity of those drives reaches 220 GB, while keeping the same thickness of 5 mm, the same hard drives found in the iPod classic. That means that the iPod classic capacity might be enlarged from 60 GB to 220 GB. That’s enough for 55,000 songs, 275 hours of video or over 34,000 photos. Moreover, the new drive uses less power, so we can expect more impressive battery life. Today’s iPod classic offers 36-hours. All this changes are likely to come in September’s iPod refresh. Tell the truth, the iPod classic isn’t Apple’s main product now, but it still sells. Everything tends to show that Apple kept it in its line only not to lose the small market of very high capacity music players.
