TiPb iPad 2 Concept

Wall Street Journal's Yukari Iwatani Kane has spilled the details on Apple's upcoming iPad 2 and they include a thinner, lighter design, front-facing camera, and... the same resolution display. Based on "sources familiar with the matter", who have historically proven incredibly accurate, Kane says:

The new device will be thinner, lighter and will come with a faster processor, more memory and a more powerful graphics processor, said the people familiar with the matter. It will have a front-facing camera for the first time for features like video-conferencing, but the resolution of the new iPad's display will be similar to the first iPad, they said.

The 3G version will be available on both AT&T and Verizon, though no word yet on whether there will be separate GSM and CDMA models or a hybrid model.

Nothing we haven't heard before but it wouldn't be unprecedented for the WSJ and Kane in particular to get this leak as a way to set expectations for iPad 2, which also means they might just be getting ready for an announcement event in the near future.

Assuming these details are accurate and imminent, how is iPad 2 sounding to you?
