iPad 2 To Feature Carbon Fiber Casing?

by on February 25th, 2011

Daring Fireball’s John Gruber is reporting that he has heard from second-hand sources that Apple may be looking to use a carbon fiber coating for the body of the iPad 2.

I could publish things I’m only half-sure about, like the iPad 2 switching from aluminum to a lightweight high-strength carbon fiber body, but I don’t, because I’m only half-sure and I’ve only heard about it from second-hand sources who themselves are unsure about it. And even if I were to off-handedly mention such speculation, I’d do so in a footnote and take pains to emphasize the uncertain nature of the information and the second-hand status of the sources thereof.

Rumors about carbon fiber Apple products have been around since 2008 with iLounge reporting earlier in February that prototype iPad 2 devices with carbon fiber casing have been spotted. It was unknown if these prototypes would make it to production.

Gruber has had a strong record with Apple rumors in the past. However, it’s always unknown how accurate and true these rumors are. We’ll find out next week!

    WAKE UP YOU DONKEY! This is one the latest rumours from John Gruber, one of the finest Apple analysts. You’re a degenerate of society. You can’t even comment with your name, you sad, sad piece of work.
