iPad 2 Suppliers List Grows Longer. Hints at Secondary Camera and SD Card Slot #ipad2


If stories originating from DigitTimes and Reuters are to be believed, we could be seeing the next generation iPad 2 as early as January, with a full public release come April. Most interesting however, are design secrets leaked by case manufacturers (here, here, and here) detailing the possibility of a secondary, front-facing camera as well as SD card slot. The benefits of a secondary camera are an obvious indicator of impending FaceTime support. The addition of an SD card reader if nothing else, will make sharing media on the iPad’s large 10″ screen that much easier.

With that said, Reuters and DigiTimes have managed to glean quite a bit of preliminary information regarding manufacturing partners. Specifically, Genius Electronic Optical and Largan Precision are cited as the sources for the iPad 2′s camera modules, with Wintek providing the touch panel displays. Finally, Simplo Technology and AVY Precision Technology will reportedly be the sources for the iPad 2′s battery.

With January just around the corner, we shouldn’t be in the dark too much longer…
