A new rumor suggests that Apple’s second-generation iPad will be released in the U.S. in early April. German Apple enthusiast blog claims to have well-sourced information that points to an iPad 2 launch in the U.S. on either Saturday, April 2nd or Saturday, April 9th. The next-generation iPad will be a U.S. exclusive for several months before launching internationally in July, according to the report. Apple’s first iPad followed a similar pattern, launching only in the U.S. at first and then becoming available in additional markets later on. The blog also states that Apple will sell the new iPad directly for six months before retail partners like Walmart and Best Buy offer the tablet. Finally, the report’s source claims that the new iPad will feature a Retina Display, a USB port and dual cameras, all of which are in line with previous rumors.
