iPad 2 LCD for Sale Already? iPad 2 to Include Vibrating Motor?

iPad 2 LCD for Sale Already? iPad 2 to Include Vibrating Motor?

iPhone and iPad parts vendors have been a big source of leaks for Apple’s upcoming devices. MacRumors reader @Frafoso has found a couple of very interesting parts on the website of GlobalDirectParts.

Notably, GlobalDirectParts is the same company that posted a video showing “iPhone 5 parts”. That video was taken down at the request of Apple. While the parts were said to represent the iPhone 5, they were a mostly accurate representation of the Verizon iPhone that was announced just weeks later.

The first part listed is the “iPad 2 LCD Screen” which is “out of stock” but is listed for a price of $218.19. For comparison, the company also sells the original iPad screen for only $63.35. We can’t tell for sure when the part appeared on their site, but the image appears to have been uploaded this weekend after the 2048×1536 rumors broke.

Based on GlobalDirectParts’ old price lists, they sold the original iPad LCD for $144.99 in June of last year. This means the $218.19 iPad 2 part represents a more expensive part, even when considering prices at launch.

The next interesting part is an iPad Vibrating Motor. No photo is provided, but it’s a curious part since the iPad currently has no vibrating motor. It’s possible this is simply a mislabeled iPhone part, but does raise the possibility of the feature making its way into the next iPad.
