is it reasonable to expect another model of ipad in 2011?
Let's establish some ground rules here. iPad3 is a rumor ... Apple in their intro of iPad2 stated "this is the year for iPad2". If you further understand the major upgrade of iPad2 with A5 and the graphics performance then you will be better equipped to ask about the feasibility of even considering higher resolution displays or cameras or the like in another model this year. (see Anandtech.com). There are a lot of folks spewing forth I wants. Apple still rules with over 10 hours of battery and very attractive fixed pricing.

If you consider that with the expectation of selling upwards of 50 million ipad2's then the idea of another interation makes no sense to me. The lines are long now, and the demand is high. The competition is scrambling. Apple is getting parts and production capacity settled down. To introduce different parts at this time just doesn't compute to me.
As I dig for info, I see a lot of posters just asking the same thing over and over, and it just goes around and around. This thread is just another instance of this cycle. I will react when Apple let's us know what iPad3 is.
Just my opinion. This was intended to be a nice response, not criticizing for asking the question.
