According to Macotakara, the next generation iPad will be thicker and therefore won’t be compatible with all current iPad 2 cases. That however won’t affect Apple’s Smart Covers which only cover the front. They believe that the front screen will be the same as the other iPads, with the same types of corners and bezel as well.
We don’t know what that image is up there but Macotakara seems to imply it is a case for the new iPad. Update: The case is for the original iPad 3G according to its seller.
