Apple launching iPad 2 on February 9th?

We know it's coming soon, we just don't know exactly when it's landing. Although February 9th now seems like a decent guess for the arrival of Apple's iPad 2.

Here's why. According to 9 to 5 Mac, a leaked screenshot of the new iPad has the date of 9th February on the calendar. This could be a random date. But according to the site, the original iPad had the launch date for the event on the presentation shots too. So if you want to follow the logic, that's the date of this year's iPad event. See the image for 'evidence' of this.

That's the launch event date though - and even then just a rumour - not the actual shelf date, which is likely to be nearer April. So don't go cracking open the piggy bank just yet.

In other iPad-related news, what we all presumed seems to have been confirmed - the presence of a camera on the iPad 2. The Macrumors site claims the iOS 4.3 Beta 2 operating system contains a wallpaper image within that shows a screenshot of the new iPad interface, which includes icons for FaceTime, Camera, and Photo Booth. Now let's be honest, that's as good as confirmation, unless someone at Apple is playing a practical joke.

Not long to wait to find out though, it that 9th february date holds true.
