As if there hasn't been enough discussion about the iPad 2 in the last few days, weeks and months, now we have leaked images and rumors about the cases. Could Apple's next-gen tablet sport a Mini DisplayPort slot?

According to Apple Insider, "a Chinese accessory supplier is floating" around a flexible silicon case dubbed as the "iPad 2nd generation" case. This new case sports a few usual open spots for familiar ports like the 30-pin connector and a headphone jack.

But there are several more open spots, which are predicted to be for a camera (inevitable), an SD card (likely) and a mini DisplayPort (wait, what?). Unfortunately, it looks like HDMI and USB were left out of the party on this generation, but there's only so much space around the edges of this 9.7-inch tablet. (If it's still going to be a 9.7-inch tablet...)

Considering other Mac computers and displays already sport mini DisplayPort connectivity, this could be very likely. But then again, we can't be sure until Apple confirms it.
