iPad 2 rumours hit the net

A summary of recent internet suppositions and rumour stories suggests that Apple will offer a more Mac-like iPad 2 and that the first-gen iPad - yet to launch - may well do so with a camera option.

Taking the imaging element, Mission:Repair reports, on receipt of iPad parts, that the device's metal frame has a hole in it that a MacBook's iSight camera slots into exactly.

Add this to the 3.2 version of the iPhone OS referencing video calls and a blurry screengrab of Jobs' iPad presentation seemingly showing his iPad with a camera hole as well as speculation hitting hard and fast that Apple may yet announce a version of the iPad with a camera, if not reveal it as a bonus feature before launch.

Meanwhile, TechCrunch reports "Apple is pretty far along on work on second tablet device. A bigger one. And this one may be much more like a Mac than an iPhone", which would please those hoping for a tablet offering Leopard rather than apps.
