Apple iPad 2 launch set for April with in-built SD card slot

Second gen tablet to feature SD card compatibility

'Trusted' source outs iPad 2 SD features

Rumoured to feature everything from a 9.7-inch Retina display to front and rear facing cameras, the upcoming iPad 2 is set to spot an in-built SD card slot, sources have revealed.

Tech blog Engadget has declared that a ‘trusted’ source close to the matter has confirmed that the imminent arrival of the second generation Apple tablet will see the device’s sleek and stylish brushed metal body be afflicted by an inch long gash capable of supporting SD card file transfers.

Whilst the inclusion of an SD card slot is not quite the USB port addition many of iPad users were hoping for, the slimmer form factor that the iPad 2 is set to adopt could have drastically influenced the form of portable media expansion the tablet device is physically capable of supporting.

Expected to be unveiled on February 1st ahead of a global rollout in April, the iPad 2 is strongly believed to come boasting dual-camera credentials with Apple’s FaceTime video calling technology touching down on its tablet device for the first time.
