We might not have to wait long to find out whether the iPad 2 will, as rumored, feature a higher-resolution display and other improvements. A story over at Macnotes.de quotes anonymous sources as saying Apple will unveil the device during a press event some time next week, even though actual availability may not follow until April.
The press event will reportedly be chiefly developer-centric and focused on iOS 4.3. However, Macnotes.net expects the iPad 2 to make an appearance as a "one more thing..." introduction. That certainly wouldn't be the first time Apple pulled such a move.
Now, the folks at AppleInsider point out that, although Macnotes.de doesn't have an "established track record" of getting Apple rumors right, the site "did obtain parts for a white iPhone 4 in December." AppleInsider also says there is evidence that Apple could release iOS 4.3 by February 13, and that the iPad 2 debuting in April seems likely, since the original iPad came out on April 3, 2010.
