iPad lovers will be pleased to learn that Apple might include an USB port (2.0 or 3.0) on the next generation of slates. The source of the rumor is Eldar Murtazin, the famous Mobile Review editor in chief who always has the scoop on Nokia devices.

He got his info from “vendors connected with Apple” and we must say that an USB port would be a welcome addition to the iPad 2. The first generation of slates used a 30 pin connector for sync and charging and an USB adapter sold separately and plugged into the 30 pin slot.

CES 2011 will probably allow us to find out more about the second generation of iPad.
