9to5mac, with help of iFixYouri iPhone repair shop, have got their hands on what they believe is an iPad 2 display. They have put together its pics along with the display of the iPad one. The iPad 2 display is a little thinner than the original iPad. It is also lighter which supports the rumors of a lighter iPad 2.

We would really love to see a lighter iPad and apart from the camera, a lighter body remains on our wishlist for iPad in 2011. For now, it is not clear if the display would be of higher resolution than the original iPad’s 1024×768, although it is rumored to be the same size i.e. 9.7 inch.
