Assuming that the device is launched looking just like the pictures below, is everyone happy with the changes made by Apple to the design of the tablet?

What do you mean nothing special? How can you tell if this is special or not just by seeing basically the shell of the device. I don't have an iPad and probably will never buy one, but it's so annoying reading all the criticism of a device that hasn't even been revealed yet. But then again, even if it comes with the ability to print out hundred dollar bills, most of you guys will still complain.

thats not a hate comment... + i based my comment on the preliminary specs found on engadget- a5 processor, same display 512ram and front camera... Maybe may comment is not well timed and inappropriate now, but i do thing that apple has a magic way over people... Apple has started a thing called fanboyism and it spreads all over, and is worst than aids... Just go and see the wp7 fanboys And me, well, i'm just born as a critic...

But its still far from being Awesome. Majority of Android tablets and dual core phones have 1gb+ so for Apple to come out with just 512 means its already behind the competition when its released. The back of it is ugly IMO. For some reason silver is just so 2009 now.. Apple need an anodised black version asap.

This is not iPad 2. These are pictures of a mockup built from specifications gained from case prototypes. The pics above were published weeks ago except they never claimed to be the actual iPad. If that wasn't evidence enough, the dead giveaways are that 1) This device is "running" iOS 3.2, not 4.x or 5 as would the legitimate iPad 2. 2) Under no circumstances will Apple label the device "iPad 2" on the back. No iPhone has ever carried it's version name (3G, 3Gs, 4) on the back. 3) The device in the pictures is made from a different metal than Apple's aluminum as evidenced by the difference in the way light refracts off the legit iPad and this device. If by some freak chance this does turn out to be iPad 2, it looks like garbage compared to the original.

man chill out...so they decided to use more angled sides. thats the only difference. it looks like virtually the same device! if this is the design how will people know that this is the 2nd gen. if they dont label "iPad 2"? they look too similar. you think that Apple would label them both iPad and make the customer inspect the device to see which one they are purchasing? iPad 2 labeling is not unrealistic. dont understand peoples logic sometimes

I personally dont like using apple products because they are so restrictive, and this wont change my mind. Just by looking at it, it does not seem to have a wow factor to its shape. I like the ipad 1 look better, smooth flat and less boxy. Looking at the guessed specs its not that great either...but this is coming from a person who doesnt see the use in tablets until they can top a mid-tiered laptop. I have no problem using my phone as a primary internet source, its not too small for me anyway, can carry it everywhere and not have a problem. Tablets,until they can handle EVERYTHING i might need like my Laptop I wont be getting one. Although, i do wish other companies would start making laptops that look in design/shape like the macbook air, except a bit more beefed up and with a more suitable price tag. All in all I guess there are millions of others with the oposite opinion, " I dont need a bulky laptop,or alot of power and etc" where in their case this might be the most perfect device for them...but for me....maybe in 5 years.

Just hope that it comes with a better rear camera than what is on the 4th gen iPod touch.
