    Apple has set the wheels of production for the iPad 2 in motion, according to a report on The Wall Street Journal today. The report mysteriously cites “people familiar with the matter†as saying that Apple has already started production on the second version of the iPad. The WSJ says that according to their sources, many of the rumours that we’ve been hearing over the past couple of months are actually right on the money, as the iPad 2 will be thinner, lighter, have a faster processor and more memory, as well as a front-facing camera. The report doesn't mention a back-facing camera, although that’s not to say it won’t still have one. And although the new iPad will have a more powerful graphics processor, the screen resolution will be “similar†to that of the current iPad, so it looks like those recent rumours that said that the iPad 2 will not be getting a Retina Display were correct.

    Very interestingly, The Wall Street Journal says that it has also learned that the new iPad will only be available via Verizon and AT&T, and not Sprint Nextel or T-Mobile USA, or any other provider, for that matter.

    Needless to say, Apple declined to make any comment on the report!

      Thinner, lighter, faster, facetime camera, better speaker, and curved back are the rumors - if true, I will be getting a next generation iPad when it comes out.

      Hopefully no curved backing. That is a disaster waiting to happen.

      Why's that? Wouldn't it be more comfortable to hold?

      I've always heard it would have a flat back, rather than curved. If they're mounting hardware on the back like a camera, wouldn't that be more problematic with a curved surface? The gentle slope of the current model makes it comfortable to hold without case, but it seems like very few people do that, so I could see them justifying going to flat.

      Okay so the goal is to get a verizon iPad so those of us with late AT&T can finally have unlimited internet use!!

      This is good, because I don't use my iPad nearly as much as I'd like, simply because of data caps.

      I feel for my friends in USA as we can purchase the iPad from Apple unlocked. I assume that is not the case in USA yes when the new iPad 2 comes to Australia I will upgrade and keep my current iPad for the family.

      Cheers from down under. Where only with in one month in Queensland a river can flood 34000 homes in Brisbane and local areas and a category 5 cyclone can rage for 7 hours in northern Queensland consuming any thing in it's path

      Smile we are strong. , healthy and wise. Tomorrow is another day
