Digitimes is reporting those facts (or) new rumors
It appears that Apple will introduce a low-end low-priced iPad 2 with only 8GB os space.
Another rumor round-up for the upcoming next week's keynote. According to Digitimes, Apple want to release a new ipad 2 with only 8GB of disk space, presumably seeking to reduce costs to make the device as affordable as possible while also differentiating the offering from the upcoming iPad 3.
Anyway, we'll see if this is confirmed or not on March 7th.
