iPad 2 seen in the wild at News Corp event

ipad-2-seen-new-york Who needs rumors about the iPad 2 when the real thing is floating around in New York? Reuters is reporting that a prototype iPad with a front facing camera was spotted today at the News Corp launch of The Daily digital newspaper.

A Reuters eyewitness saw what appeared to be a working model of the next iPad with a front-facing camera at the top edge of the glass screen at a press conference to mark the debut of News Corp’s Daily online paper in New York on Wednesday.

A source with knowledge of the device confirmed its existence, adding that the final release model could have other features.

Unsurprisingly, neither News Corp or Apple commented on the device or its sighting. I wonder if anyone inadvertently got a picture of it? If prototypes are being openly used in public, a release date can’t be too far off…

    One sentence about a prototype iPad and the rest of the article is trash, the whole thing is hearsay “oh we know someone who saw something” right, who doesn’t?

    Through six degrees of separation I know an army of Foxconn workers that are currently making the next iPad right this minute!

    TechCrunch points out this “story” was emailed to them by a PR agency:

    Sounds shady doesn’t it? Reuters reporters have been caught before manufacturing news, this is a silly case of it with less consequence.

    I actually prefer that there are no pictures leaked. I thought the unveiling of the iPhone 4 would have been a little more spectacular had Jobs not had to say “So stop me if you’ve seen this before..”. Although, people did find that funny.

    It’s like a UFO sighting, wish there was a photo though!!!
