iPad 2 Rumored To Be Slimmer, No SD Slot

With Apple’s press conference on the horizon for next week, more rumors are circulating about what the iPad 2 will look like.

Engadget is reporting that the iPad 2 won’t have an SD card slot or a high res screen, two rumors that we’ve heard about. Engadget has more: “What’s the cause of the switch? Well our sources weren’t crystal clear on the exact reasons, but the gist of what was explained to us centered around vague ‘engineering issues’ which may have forced some changes at the eleventh hour. It’s worth noting once again that these sources have been dead right on specific Apple plans and specifications for unannounced products in the past, and we have no reason to believe these changes are due to anything more than legitimate engineering decisions made close to launch.”

We’ll be live blogging the event on Wednesday, so stay check back to find out what Apple has in the works.
