A source that has proven reliable in the past outs new components that will allegedly be part of Apple’s upcoming next-generation iPad. GlobalDirectParts, consumer electronics parts supplier and source of the Verizon iPhone parts video that ended up being the real deal, has added two interesting new items to its website. The first is an “OEM Apple iPad 2 LCD screen,” which rings up at $218.19 compared to the current-generation iPad’s display which cost $144.99 from the supplier when it first became available. This further supports rumors that Apple’s next iPad will have a high resolution display. The second component of interest is a $9.99 “OEM Apple iPad vibrating motor,” which would be a completely new addition to the iPad 2 considering the current iPad does not include a vibrate function.
