The iPad 2 rumors are running rampant, and the latest to hit the waves is the possibility of a proximity sensor being included.

The ambient light sensor of the current-gen iPad could possibly do this as well, but the functionality wouldn't be as simple to produce. This would be an interesting feature to include to help with battery life and such. Just one more piece of chum in the shark infested waters of the iPad 2 rumor mill.
