iPad 2 spotted at ‘The Daily’ launch event

A prototype of the second-generation iPad was present at the media event for the launch of News Corp.‘s new tablet-based newspaper The Daily. Reuters reports that an eyewitness saw the device, which the report describes as “a working model” with “a front-facing camera at the top edge of the glass screen.” The report also states that a source with knowledge of the device confirmed its existence, but added that the final release model’s feature set may differ from that of the prototype’s. Prior reports, including a mock-up rear shell spotted by iLounge at CES, have suggested that the next-generation iPad will include both front- and rear-facing cameras, as well as a slimmer, flatter body.

And what’s the evidence beyond someone saying it was present? Jason Calacanis was saying all kinds of stuff about the iPad last year that didn’t end up being true. When there’s no pictures, it’s easy enough to say, “Yeah, I saw a new device.”

You know what they say- Pics or it didn’t happen.
