Apple adverts to tease iPad 2

Further hinting towards a January unveiling of the iPad 2 Apple has reportedly already shot the promotional commercials for the mooted follow-up to its market leading tablet.

Apple insiders 9 to 5 Mac are reporting that “One of the participants” revealed to them that the commercials were shot late last month by illustrious British photographer David Sims at New York’s Pier 59.

Despite a heavy gathering of security and all participants being required to sign a non disclosure agreement on events, information on the iPad 2 adverts has emerged hinting that the fruity tech company will stick to its annual product cycle with the iPad.

Many rumours have already circulated surrounding the iPad 2 pegging the Apple tablet with everything from front and rear facing cameras, a Retina Display,FaceTime video calls and a smaller 7-inch form, the later of which Steve Jobs denied in a scathing attack on the mini-sized tablets.

Reports from the commercial shoot suggest that the current iPad model was used in the filming with the new model to be digitally added in post production. If true this would strongly suggest that Jobs is true to his word and future iPads will follow the current 9.7-inch size and not be tempted into an attack on 7-inch models such as the recently released Samsung Galaxy Tab.
