Mythical 'iPad 2' caught on camera

'Dummy' vid

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

There's a smattering of videos YouTubing their way across the web that purport to show the oft-rumored iPad 2 in plain view at last week's Consumer Electronics Show.

The Reg is highly skeptical as to their authenticity, but here are two for your edification and enjoyment:

The videos are purported to be of a dummy case given by Cupertino to an unnamed Chinese iPad-accessory manufacturer so that they could get a jump on creating cases for the device, rumored to appear as early as next month.

Our experience in talking with accessory manufacturers, however – both in the US and in China – has been that they're as in the dark as anyone as to Apple's plans. We have in the past even received furtive phone calls from some major suppliers, asking if we had any inside information about iGadget specs before their release.

We never have – well, there was the Gizmodophone, but that was a fluke – and it's our considered opinion that Apple would have sent a rapid-response legal takedown team to Las Vegas had it caught wind of a prototype case in the wild.

Nothing to see here, we say. Move along, now. ®
