One of the most significant new features of the iPad (aside from the extra camera) is the new A5 processor. Apple’s claiming twice the performance and up to nine times the graphics power.

Saurik, the man behind Cydia, is seeing some possible variables that could stir up the More >

This release has proved to be almost rock-solid proof that the next-gen iPad will have a camera or it’s very likely it will have 2, one in front and one in back. When developers got their hands on the beta they began digging and it didn’t take long before they found photo evidence that shows there might be plans for a camera on the iPad 2 which looks to be released some time in the first half of this year.
The image causing the uproar was found in the beta and titled ‘homeScreenOverlayFaceTime~ipad.png’ that according to More >
