Kevin Rose, the founder of Digg, posted in his blog saying, “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 camera. If you’re thinking of buying an iPad, hold off for now.”

There have been other rumors and mock-ups about the iPad two. Yesterday, I wrote about the most recent mock-up that arrived at CES. It met the specs disclosed by Kevin too.

More evidence that Apple is going to make a big product announcement is that they have held onto its “overstaffed holiday personnel at many retail stores.” Appleinsider said that Apple is limiting vacation time for its retail employees for a three-week period which starts towards the end of January. However, the company’s employees have no idea about what the big boys up top are planning.

Even so, I am excited for this news because I have been looking forward to being video chat on the iPad for a long time, and it seems that it is just around the corner.

I will provide more details as they come out.
