More pointless Apple iPad 2 speculation ahoy
It's less than five hours until Apple announces the new iPad, but that hasn't stopped every news organisation frenetically beating themselves off over the already-bejizzled rumour mill. Frankly, we're surprised it's still turning despite being so gummed up.
So we're chipping in too - website Your Daily Apple claims Amazon accidentally posted iPad 2 details to the German store. The link to the product is dead, but somebody was allegedly quick enough to get a screengrab:
The price is what throws doubt over the screenshot; a 16GB Wifi 3G iPad 2 for just €499 - that's the same price as the entry level iPad without 3G. All said, Apple have a real opportunity to keep the competition at bay with today's launch. The likes of Blackberry, HP and Motorola are already a year behind with their products; Apple can use volume to offer the iPad2 at a low price, and go on to discount the original iPad to ensure there's a truly affordable quality tablet on the market.
Who knows? Or even cares. More news this evening, then. And maybe we'll hear about the iPad 3 before too long...
