If we believe the rumor on web about the upcoming Apple iPad2 which is a lighter and improved version of existing iPad, then the next version will start shipping from mid April 2011. As now there are so many Android tablets in the market and out of those Motorola Xoom is creating so much buzz because of the Android Honeycomb version which is a specially designed OS for tablets. That’s why Apple will have to raise the standard of their very successful tablet i.e. iPad and that’s why it is expected that after one year of iPad launch, Apple will announce the iPad2.
Based on the rumors and sources on web, this time Apple is coming up with lighter version of iPad with improved performance and better hardware. Features like camera, SD card slot were missing in iPad, so this time they are coming up with front and rear camera and a separate SD card slot. Here is the complete set of spec of iPad2.
– Dual Core Processor (Multi-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU)
– Dual-core SGX543 GPU
– 1 mm thinner display unit LP097X02-SLN1
– Front and Rear facing camera
– GSM / CDMA chipset
– 1024 x 768 pixel display resolution
Of course there will be some redesigning but not expected much as the design of iPad is really cool.
