iPad 2 to have a resolution of 2048×1536?

iPad 2 to have a resolution of 2048x1536?

MacRumors has published some ‘evidence’ that the iPad 2 most likely will feature a resolution of 2048×1536. And if they ramp up the amount of pixels they have to put in some more horse powers – so that the iPad 2 will feature the much more powerful A5 chip is probably a safe bet as well. Earlier reports also reveals that the iPad 2 will feature a camera as well. The original iPad was presented on the 27th of January 2010 and Apple usually present new models in yearly cycles so expect an iPad 2 reveal pretty soon.

Get well soon Steve!

The following email was sent to all of the Apple staff today:


At my request, the board of directors has granted me a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health. I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company.

I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for all of Apple’s day to day operations. I have great confidence that Tim and the rest of the executive management team will do a terrific job executing the exciting plans we have in place for 2011.

I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can. In the meantime, my family and I would deeply appreciate respect for our privacy.


Hopefully Steve will be healthy and strong very soon.
