Apple iPad 2: Release Date Update – April 2011?

We have some exciting news to bring you now, we have some more details on the rumored second generation Apple iPad, or iPad 2 as it is more commonly known. We may be closer to a release than we previously thought.

As reported from Engadget, fresh information has come courtesy of Digitimes, who have said that suppliers Foxconn have been told to ship the iPad 2 within the next 100 days.

That doesn’t mean that the iPad 2 will be available to buy in February though, as Foxconn will first have to deliver units to Apple, who then take care of launch proceedings. If the details above are true, then it could mean that the iPad 2 will be available to buy in retail stores sometime during April – what are your thoughts on this?

It looks like the next iPad is going to release around the same time as RIM’s BlackBerry Playbook, which has definitely been picking up momentum recently, especially after it’s appearance at All Things Digital.

For those of you who still don’t own an iPad, are you interested in the upcoming smaller model or not? It looks like the second generation iPad will be around 7-inches in size, meaning that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will face even more competition from Apple.
