The iPad 2 :Expectations Vs Hype

Expectations from iPad 2

The coming of ipad 2 has generated a lot of expectations from Apple Fans and  the  Industry  While there are many rumors floating on ipad 2, We bring you  ; some innights  from Business Leaders,  Who have been following the Apple Story for a long time

Here  are some Insights from select industry leaders and Apple users 

The iPad 2 needs to include not one, but two cameras. The main camera should be at least 3 megapixels (preferably 5) and include a flash and the ability to capture video. Video capture at 720p HD would be nice, but that's probably asking too much. The secondary (and hopefully user-facing) camera should rate at least 1 megapixel

Might be a  pipe dream, but with  4G networks spreading across the U.S. (and other markets) in the form of LTE, WiMax, and HSPA+. The next-gen iPad needs to jump ahead of the 3G pack and shoot straight for 4G. Whether it is WiMax, HSPA+, or LTE, Apple should be looking ahead at the next year and making sure its tablet can handle all (or any) of the major 4G networks.

A penta-band (850/900/1700/1900/2100MHz) HSPA+ iPad at 21Mbps would be the safest bet for Apple to make, as it would give it speedy access on AT&T and T-Mobile's networks in the U.S., and an array of network operators overseas.

The next generation iPad is widely rumored to come equipped with a FaceTime camera for video calling and a gyroscope for advanced motion control sensing, also the ipad 2  is expected to be thinner than the previous model and have an improved display, and may even include a built-in USB connector

The new iPad may thinner than the existing model and essentially made from one piece of metal with no pins needed. It requires a new type of manufacturing process as a result, similar to the company’s unibody approach seen in MacBooks

Unless there’s a new seven-inch model we’ll be amazed if the iPad 2 price is dramatically lower than the model it replaces: Apple isn’t struggling to shift units and rivals are charging similar prices. But some say it can be available at around $ 300.

According to Rumors the new iPad might get an ultra-dense, double-resolution screen, similar to the "retina" display on the iPhone 4. iPad 2 will indeed add "at least one" camera for video chat, the anonymously sourced Journal story claims—raising the possibility that it won't get a rear-facing camera for recording HD video, like on such Android-powered competitors as the Dell Streak 7, the Motorola Xoom, and the LG G-Slate.

GigaOm has an interesting perspective, noting that the Journal piece "feels like an intentional leak" on Apple's part, intended not only to "bolster interest" in the next-generation iPad but also to deflate "some of the loftier expectations floating around," such as word that the iPad 2 might arrive with an eye-popping, 2,048-by-1,536 pixel display.
while the iPad 2 will be available through both AT&T and Verizon, it won't be offered by Sprint or T-Mobile—and don't count on 4G data support either, the Journal adds.Word had already been circulating that a "retina" display for the next iPad might not materialize, although there's still plenty of chatter that the iPad 2 will boast a pair of cameras—one in front, another in back—and perhaps a longed-for SD memory card slot.

.Most analysts are speculating that the technological improvements of the second version will include but not be limited to: a dual-core processor with more RAM, dual GSM/CDMA chip, SD card slot, and display port video output
