iPad 2 screen and a vibrating motor listed on parts suppliers website

Parts supplier Global Direct Parts has listings on its site for a replacement LCD screen for the iPad 2 and a vibrating motor. There is not much information on either item however the price of the LCD panel is rather interesting. The iPad 2 LCD is listed at a price of $218.19. When you compare this to the current iPad LCD price on the same site at a cost $69.99, this starts to make you wonder all sorts of things. Higher resolution displays anyone?

The vibrating motor is listed as an OEM Apple iPad Vibrating Motor. The current generation iPad does not have a vibrating motor; unlike the iPhone models which use it for notifications. Thinking away from notifications for a moment, how good would an iPad be for gaming if it had a vibrating motor for feedback in games, similar to the PlayStation and Xbox controllers?

Of course this could all turn out to be link bait, but it is fun speculating on the future iPad 2 feature set. What do you think? Let us know in the comments!

iPad 2 screen and a vibrating motor listed on parts suppliers website


I really hope that this is indeed accurate and that the iPad 2 will have some kind of higher resolution display :) Time will tell I guess...

Well, according to your source the price for the iPad 1 screen was $144.99 in June 2010, two months after the iPad 1 came out. And now the price for the iPad 2 screen is $218.19, two to three months before the iPad 2 comes out. Maybe it's news to you, but hardware tends to get cheaper over time, especially if it's preproduction hardware for an unreleased product. So your $218.99 to $69.99 comparison is totally bogus.

Man I was looking forward to Steve unveiling the ipad 2 and all of it's new features at Mac world.

I am really starting to think about upgrading to the new ipad. Especially if it comes with all these new features everyone is speculating on

The Internet is new to me, being that I just retired. It seems like there are millions of blogs on the Internet today and the more I read the more I want to comment on them. Your blog is not like most of the blogs that I read on the Internet, and I like the style of what you are presenting here. I not only read and comment on the blogs of others but I now have my own blog and my own website. I put my site and email in the allocated spaces. I think it is ok that I incuded them since there seems to be a place to do that. Hope so anyway. TheVeryBest2You 13 9
