Considering the plethora of tablet computers unveiled during last week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the dominance of Apple’s iPad is about to hit a steep decline.

Yet, while the likes of ASUSTeK, Lenovo, Dell and Motorola are all offering compelling reasons to consider a tablet purchase without Apple’s iconic branding, it would be foolish to assume Jobs & Co. are likely to relinquish their market grip.

Moreover, with the doors of CES barely closed, a seemingly reputable rumour connected to the emergence of Apple’s iPad 2 has already begun gathering online momentum.

Writing on his official blog, Digg founder Kevin Rose has said Cupertino-based Apple will have formally unveiled the iPad’s much talked about tablet successor by early February.

“I have it on good authority that Apple will be announcing the iPad 2 in the next 3-4 weeks,” offered Rose.

Going beyond merely pinning a tentative date on the iPad 2’s official debut, Rose also said the revised tablet will come equipped with a retina display and front and rear cameras.

“If you’re thinking of buying an iPad, hold off for now,” he advised.

This latest rumour comes after AppleInsider last week revealed that staff at Apple’s retail outlets have had restrictions placed on holiday time for a three-week period due to kick off at the beginning of February.
