The iPad 2 Event: predictions

Another Apple event today. Here’s what I’m guessing we’ll see:

The iPad 2. I suspect it will just be called iPad.

  • I think we’ll see WiFi and 3G models, and the same 3G model will work on either Verizon or AT&T.
  • The screen will be the same resolution as the current iPad.
  • It will be thinner, lighter, have a better speaker, but no other major external changes.
  • The OS will be 4.3.
  • It will have a faster processor and 512 MB of RAM.
  • Storage will be 16, 32, and 64 GB. It will have a faster processor
  • It will have cameras, though these could be eliminated on the low end model
  • I could see the low end model dropping to $399.
  • it will ship within the next 30 days, possibly immediately.

What else will we see?

I think Apple will announce that the white iPhone 4 will also begin shipping this month.

iOS5 preview? Possible, but I could also imagine not seeing it at this event. It may be too distracting.

I do think we’ll get some sort of MobileMe announcement with new features that are going to be available soon. Some level of MobileMe access will become free with your iOS device.
