Last minute iPad 2 mockups, specs... maybe

Last minute iPad 2 mockups, specs... maybe

With only hours aways from the official iPad 2 announcement, mockups of the new device showed up in China. It features a slimmer profile with tapered edges and a flat back, rear and front facing cameras, and bigger speaker. The power button and headphone jack are sloped much like on an iPod touch. The 3G antenna has a white cover, but it's expected to be black on the final units.

The digits on the back of the device and the model number is one for the original Apple TV while the FCC ID is for a WiFi-only iPad, but those could be mere placeholders on what is, once again, a mockup and not a real working tablet.

Also, iPad 2 has been spotted on Amazon Germany with a list of specs and availability date of March 17. The listing claims that the iPad 2 will have a camera, Thunderbolt, and a 1.2 GHz CPU.

What do you think? Real, fake, or really fake? Only a couple more hours until we know!

More images after the break!

Apple Store Down in advanced of iPad 2 event

Apple Store Down in advanced of iPad 2 event

Wow, still 3 hours to go before the iPad 2 event and the Apple Online Store is already down? The chances of iPad 2 being available to buy following the event are slim but could pre-orders start as soon as today? Could something else be getting an update? (No white iPhone 4 rumors, please!) Or is this just the worst scheduled maintenance window ever?

[Thanks Alexander!]

Random House publications now available on iBooks

Random House publications now available on iBooks

As rumored, it looks like Random House -- the last big publisher hold-out -- now has books available in Apple's iBooks library. Or as Chad put it when he woke us all up at the crack of dawn this morning:

Born to Run from Christopher McDougall and Tim Ferris's books can now be downloaded!!! Whoot!

Is this part of the iPad 2 event announcement later today? Seems a bit of a coincidence timing wise if not... Either way, anyone want to recommend some other good Random House books to check out?

Daily tip: how to create HTML rich e-mail on your iPhone using Markdown Mail

Curious how to create rich, HTML email iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch? iOS may show you fancy emails but it doesn't natively support creating them. However, there are tons of apps available that allow you to do so. Which one you choose is really a matter of preference. I've tried a couple and found Markdown Mail to be my personal favorite. Obviously you'll have to learn markdown if you don't already but I promise, it's dead simple. There's even a link in-app to a help page with all the syntax. Jump through to see how using Markdown Mail (or any other HTML e-mail app) can allow you to create HTML rich e-mails.

Verizon killing off unlimited data, switching to tiered pricing for iPhone this summer

Verizon CFO Fran Shammo told investors today that Verizon Wireless will be moving to tiered data plans as early as this summer, no longer offering the unlimited data plan Verizon iPhone users have enjoyed since Apple's smartphone came to the network last month.

Verizon Communications Inc. will stop offering unlimited data plans for Apple Inc.’s iPhone as soon as this summer and switch to a tiered pricing offering that can generate more revenue and hold the heaviest users in check.

FAA approves Apple iPad for pilot flight charts

The FAA has given a thumbs up for a flight charter company to begin using the iPad in place of paper flight charts, making it much easier and more efficient for pilots to keep tabs on their flight charts while on the ground and in the air. Wired reports:

The Federal Aviation Administration is allowing charter company Executive Jet Management to use Apple's tablet as an approved alternative to paper charts.

Steve Jobs considering iPad 2 event appearance?

According to several sources close to the situation, Apple CEO Steve Jobs–who is on a health-related leave from the company–is definitely considering an appearance at its big iPad 2 event tomorrow.

But the possibility–which would be a big sensation at the San Francisco gathering and has been subject to great speculation–is also just as definitely not confirmed as yet, stressed sources.
