We’re only days away from the March 2nd Apple event meant to announce the new iPad officially and already we’re dealing with leaks. What you see below are fresh images of the iPad 2 slate, showing off the design of the device and comparing it to the predecessor.

Apple seems to have flattened out the back of the iPad 2 and the slate seems a tad smaller than the first iPad. Sides are more angular and we find a speaker grille on the bottom left of the tablet, while the dock connector is at the middle of the bottom. It seems most people who have seen this device claim it’s a fake and consider it ugly.

What’s your opinion?
