Report: iPad 2 display leaked

By Hayley Tsukayama

Pictures of the iPad 2's screen appeared on the Mac repair company iFix Your i's blog, reportedly showing that the LCD for the second generation is a bit thinner -- by about a millimeter. The screen's connectors also seem to indicate that the next-generation iPad will be able to dock in a landscape orientation.

The repair company said it was not that impressed with the second-generation iPad, speculating from the screen that there would not be that many changes to the tablet.

"Our bets are on the landscape docking, front and rear camera, and the rest basically the same, but thinner," the company said.

A commenter at the Mac-dedicated blog 9 to 5 Mac said that the screen is a LG Phillips 9.7in XGA 1024×768 H-IPS display.

Screen connector's the same on the two LCDs, can't project a horizontal dock based on that.
