We’ve talked a lot about Apple’s next-generation iPad in the last few months, and now it looks like the tablet has finally (and truly) entered production.
According to The Wall Street Journal and unnamed people familiar with the matter, the new iPad is thinner and lighter than the first model, featuring “at least one camera on the front” – for video calling, of course.
A more powerful graphics processor, plus more memory, are also expected. Sure enough, we did hear most of these details before.
Reportedly, the second-generation iPad will be initially launched by AT&T and Verizon. This shouldn’t surprise anyone, as the two carriers are currently the only ones to offer the iPhone and the first iPad to US customers.
Since Apple doesn’t really like suprises when it comes to names, the new iPad will probably be called iPad 2. We should find out more on this in the next few months.
Until now, Apple has sold about 15 million first-generation iPads around the world, making the product the world’s most successful tablet ever.
