Dexim iPad 2 case previewed
Dexim at the CES Unveiled event on Tuesday showed its own instance of an iPad 2 case. The example Bluetooth keyboard hybrid was designed around the widely rumored design traits and was both slimmer and more tapered at the back than a current iPad. The design seen by Engadget and others had the cutouts on the back for a camera and a larger speaker.
The accessory maker produced a mockup to reflect the design, including with a lower home button. It wouldn't say how it got the information. Most of those trying to make second-generation iPad cases are believed to be getting leaked measurements and other specifications from Foxconn factories. Representatives from Foxconn have so far denied any official knowledge of the case leaks.
Final production plans could change for the cases and wouldn't necessarily reflect Apple's design, but the company usually has to settle on a final hardware design months in advance for production.
