Digg’s Kevin Rose today claimed on good authority that Apple’s second generation iPad will debut in “3-4 weeks”, possibly Tuesday February 1st. Te iPad 2 will feature a “higher dpi”, (NOT a retina display) in addition to dual cameras.

I have it on good authority that Apple will be announcing the iPad 2 in the next “3-4 weeks”, possibly Tuesday February 1st. The iPad 2 will feature a retina display and front/back cameras.
If you’re thinking of buying an iPad, hold off for now.
Apple doubling the pixels of the current iPad (1024 x 768) would make the iPad 2 have a screen of a 2048 x 1536 resolution. That resolution seems way too high for Apple to put in a 9.7 inch display while keeping costs down. A higher resolution display does make sense though, and this could be what Rose is referring to.
