Rumors of the day: iPad 2, iPhone 5, SD card slots, and Qualcomm chips

Those sly minxes over at Engadget believe they have the low down on the iPad 2, and the upcoming iPhone 5. According to their “reliable” sources, there are a number of large changes coming to the iPhone 5 and iPad 2. A lot of the rumors they’ve uncovered have been things that have been kicking around the industry for a while now, with the obvious exception of the SD card slot.

The changes apparently include:

  1. Qualcomm chipset for all the new devices (including the Apple TV)
  2. iPad 2 isn’t that close to launch (April ship)
  3. New high-resolution screen technology in the iPad 2 (not Retina)
  4. Dual cameras in the iPad (front and rear)
  5. iPad is still 10 inches
  6. An SD card slot
  7. iPad will have a dual-band chipset (GSM+CDMA)
  8. iPhone 5 will be completely redesigned (summer launch)
  9. iPhone 5 will have Apple’s new A5 (A9-based, multi-core chip)
  10. No LTE

Most of these rumors are safe bets, but the SD card slot mention remains a bit of a problem for me.  It might be true, and a lot of people, including myself, would be ecstatic if it becomes a reality, but if anything on this list was bogus, my money would be on that one.
