According to Digg founder Kevin Rose the iPad 2 will launch within weeks, and possible as soon as February 1st.

Rose posted a short message on his blog which reads:

I have it on good authority that Apple will be announcing the iPad 2 in the next “3-4 weeks”, possibly Tuesday February 1st. The iPad 2 will feature a retina display and front/back cameras.

If you’re thinking of buying an iPad, hold off for now.

Rose also gave us some insights into what we can expect from the iPad 2. The device will include front and rear cameras, and a “higher DPI” display. The iPad 2 is also expected to feature a 128GB solid-state hard-drive, improved speakers, and one USB slot.

Along with these comments from Rose and a report from AppleInsider that we covered last week, it’s highly likely that the iPad 2 will be released very soon. So where do I trade in my old model?
