Despite the iPad being only a year old, there are already iPad 2 rumors floating around. The new gadget is said to feature a front-facing camera like the iPhone 4, a USB and SD slot, more memory and a faster processor. The tablet may sport a seven-inch screen with retina display, and is rumored to be "thinner and more like a MacBook."
According to these iPad 2 rumors, it sounds like Apple hasn't sacrificed function for portability. Either way, the iPad 2 will likely influence other companies to follow Apple's footsteps, continuously updating their gadgets to keep up with the ongoing technologies.
