A raft of pictures purporting to show the iPad 2 have popped up on the web just hours before the updated tablet will to be unveiled.

The snaps come from Chinese-language site DGtle, which undoubtedly has access to the nation's notoriously leaky electronics factories. As we've seen many times before - most recently with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, the PlayStation phone - kit goes walkies and ends up on the shelves of retailers in China's Shenzhen district.

Do these shots, then, show the real thing? Could well be - though we can't rule out a mock-up constructed on the back of the many, many rumours that have flown around concerning the new iPad.

Apart from the claimed SD slot, this boy has them all.

Here they are:
