Tools

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) is planning to reveal the iPad 2 on March 2 during an event in San Francisco, according to All Things Digital, which cited multiple sources.

This next generation of the iPad is expected to be thinner than the original version and will include an improved display, a front-facing camera and Facetime video chat support. Other reports say the device will use a Qualcomm multi-mode chip, which is capable of running on CDMA and GSM networks globally.

Meanwhile, Taiwanese brokerage firm Yuanta Securities had issued a note indicating that the iPad 2 would be delayed because of backorders with one of its contract manufacturers. However, Reuters, citing a source close to the matter, reported this report was untrue.
