Leaked Next-Generation iPad Cases Suggest Rear-Facing Camera, SD Card Slot?

A pair of images showing claimed cases for the next-generation iPad have surfaced, with the images and accompanying information suggesting that the device may sport both a rear-facing camera and an SD card slot.

One image comes from Shenzhen MacTop Electronics (via iLounge) and depicts the rear shell of a white case claimed to be for the next-generation iPad. An opening in the top left corner of the case suggests that, if the case design is based on actual knowledge of the product, the next iPad will feature a rear-facing camera.

A front-facing camera has been widely expected to be included in the next-generation iPad as Apple seeks to expand availability of its FaceTime video chat service, but there have been conflicting reports as to whether the company will also include a rear-facing camera.

The case also features an opening on the side in the location of the mute switch and volume rocker on the present model, as well as an opening in the center of the bottom, presumably for the dock connector. A second, larger opening is located to the left of the dock connector, in the present location of the device's speaker.

A second image, posted at Kodawarisan [Google translation], shows a pair of back shells in white and black for cases also claimed to be for the next-generation iPad. As in the other image, these cases show an opening for a rear-facing camera in the top left corner.

Also visible is a hole at the right side of the top edge of the case in the location of the headphone jack on the current model, as well as a side opening in the location of the current mute switch and volume rocker, although the opening appears smaller than would be required for the present layout. While accommodation for the dock connector is not readily visible in this image, the mysterious large opening to the left of the dock is present.

Interestingly, the description accompanying the image makes mention not only of a FaceTime camera but also an SD card slot. It is unknown, however, whether the opening at the bottom left is intended to be for such a slot. The current iPad lacks an SD card slot, with Apple offering a $29 kit providing a pair adapters to allow users to move photos to their iPads via either SD card or USB through the device's dock connector.

iOS 4.3 and Mac App Store Coming This 13th December?

 In case you are on of our readers, you may know that Apple is reportedly launching iOS 4.3 next Monday (December 13th). However, an inside source has just told Appletell that Apple is targeting a Monday, December 13th launch of the Mac App Store.

An inside source has just told us that Apple is targeting a Monday, December 13th launch of the Mac App Store. The company apparently told developers to have their software prepared for a launch as early as Monday the 6th of this month, but our contact would be shocked if that happened at this point. Apple has made no official announcements regarding this, and delays could always happen, but there's a push to be launched before Christmas, well ahead of the previously estimated January release.
At the Back to the Mac even on October 20th, Steve Jobs confirmed that the Mac App Store should be launched after 90 days which means late in January 2011 so we can't verify these claims but we do know that Apple has already started asking developers to submit their apps to the Mac App Store and has already seeded a new version of Mac OS X 10.6.6 to Mac App developers. So this may claims that Apple would launch it earlier than what they said. More updates as they come, stay tuned !

Norman Foster to design Apple’s new campus called ‘Apple City’

Click the image to open in full size.

Apple has been working secretly with the world-renowned designer of the Hong Kong International Airport on the design of its new campus in Cupertino, according to a business publication in Spain. El Economista [googletrans] profiles "Apple City," which has been designed by Norman Foster - who also worked on the design of all-solar Masdar City in Abu Dhabi - to be at the cutting edge of energy efficiency and sustainability, and will feature a network of tunnels underground instead of roads connecting the buildings.

The design process has reportedly been going on for months, but Apple just bought a disused 98-acre parcel of land from Hewlett-Packard for the new Apple City, right next to 50 acres the company bought back in 2006. The company is outgrowing its current headquarters at One Infinite Loop, Apple spokesman Steve Dowling told the San Jose Mercury News, saying "we now occupy 57 buildings in Cupertino and our campus is bursting at the seams." The acquisition of the new plot of land will allow the project to go forward.

Apple City reportedly takes a lot of elements from the Foster + Partners design of Masdar City, which is being built from the ground up to be carbon-neutral and zero waste, with no cars allowed inside the city walls and personal rapid transit "pods" to take everyone around. Apple City will also be car-free, with all buildings connected by tunnels. In addition to giving employees an easier way around the 146-acre campus, which is split by Pruneridge Avenue and Interstate 280, the tunnels will also eliminate all roads and parking lots on the surface. "The buildings which will house the engineers and R&D will also be multifunctional and will incorporate cutting-edge technology in materials and equipment as well as renewable energy resources," El Economista's report says.
