iPad 2 case spotted at CES

Has camera hole, larger speaker

Woops; Chinese manufacturer Dexim has been spotted exhibiting a case for the next iPad at CES in Las Vegas.

When approached regarding its new iPad case with built-in Bluetooth keyboard (laptop style), spokespersons told Engadget that its own first-gen iPad wouldn't fit - because the case is designed for the next iteration of Apple's toy.


As you can see the Dexim case features telltale cutouts for a rear-facing camera, plus a larger speaker.

Engadget reports that the mockup iPad 2 that it found inside the case was a tad bit slimmer than the first-gen iPad, with a home button positioned nearer the bottom edge.

While there's the off chance Dexim's info is wrong, it's obviously confident enough in its sources to have built an actual case - so we bet it's pretty confident.

Component suppliers have previously indicated that the iPad 2 could launch as soon as April this year and that it'll be slimmer, lighter and have a better resolution display.

A bit rubbish for those who got an iPad at Christmas, eh?
