We had hoped that the White iPhone 4 would have been launched by now, but it seems as though the White iPad 2 could be coming first. If this were to happen, then it would be a total embarrassment for Apple. Having said that, they would be pretty stupid to release the other color option of the 4th-generation iPhone just months before a new model is due to hit the market.
The reason why rumors have started up once again for the white version of the iPad 2 is due to the fact that 9 to 5 Mac has received images of a part for the new tablet. They say what we are all thinking, how come they can produce this in white and not the iPhone 4. This is a good question, but we do know that Apple has had an issue with how the flash reacts to the white on the latest iPhone.
This is the best rumor that we have yet for a white iPad 2, and we are not even certain if this will be a color choice that we would want. However, when you consider just how popular Apple fans have wanted other products in white, we cannot see why this would not be the same for their tablet device as well.
We only have two days to wait until we know what the 2nd-generation iPad will look like and what specs it will have. It is most likely that it will be powered by the A5 dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM and also a front-facing camera for FaceTime, but that’s about it for now. There is also speculation that the iPad 2 will come with a Thunderbolt port like the new 2011 MacBook Pro, but we will just have to wait and see.
We would like to know a few things from you, would you buy a white iPad 2? What hardware would you like to see? Finally, what price would you be prepared to pay for the new Apple tablet?
