Citing an unconfirmed report in a Chinese newspaper, Digitimes has had the stone guff to whisper into our supple ears a list of five possible features the iPad 2 may or may not possess. The list is shakey at best, but sensible, and includes thinner glass, for mobility, a Retina display, video chat (meaning FaceTime (meaning cameras)), a 3-axis gyroscope, and – get this – a USB port.
On the whole, most of these features are a pretty good bet, I’d say. The only reason the iPad 1 doesn’t have a camera was so they could make money this time out, and a large-as-hell Retina display is also likely in the cards in the wake of the iPhone 4. But a USB port? As totally rad as that would be, that seems enormously out of character for Steve. I guess we’ll see. Connecting all manner of battery-draining devices to a tablet is for defs on my to do list.
