iPad 2 mockup rear

Thanks to a handful of recent case leaks, we've got a pretty good idea of what the iPad 2 could look like when it launches (likely in April). If you wanted any more evidence, though, we're happy to provide it.  Another mockup of Apple's next tablet has appeared at CES, and this one is much more detailed than the one we saw yesterday.  It's got the new speaker we've heard so much about, a camera on the front and rear, the iPod Touch-like form factor, and even has 128GB of storage.  Even the product number, A1337, is the same as a current iPad.  The only thing that detracts from the realism of this fake is the poorly-emulated version of iOS around front. 

It's important to remember that, like any other leak or rumor, you should keep a grain of salt handy for the entire time that you're reading this article.  After all, it's possible that whoever put together this thing simply gathered up all of the other iPad 2 rumors that have been flying for months and created their best guess as to what Apple's next tablet will look like.  That said, nothing here seems completely out of the realm of possibility, although I wouldn't be shocked if Apple retains the same 16, 32, and 64GB capacities found in the first-gen iPad.  What do you all think?  Potential iPad 2 look-alike or just a crazy mashup of rumors?
