    Looks like it may be happening.

    AppleInsider | Apple's iPad 2 suppliers to ramp up in Q1 2011 - rumor



    Sucks though cause that means i may want to sell my ipad soon and i want be able to transfer apps i bought onto here but exciting nonetheless. Any guesses to what 2nd generation will have other then a camera?

    Not to disappoint you it is a rumor been there done that however we appreciate your input.
    My point is simple never assume ok Apple follows a specific path and yes there will be a new iPad however April is most likely the release date based on previous releases

    We will update the information when it is available so be patient.

    On Computer World, a pundit has come out with the summary of what experts consider to be the next version of the iPad (v.2.0)

    Apple will replace the 3G model with a World iPad using Qualcomm's multimode CDMA-GSM chip.

    5.0 megapixel cameras from Omnivsion will be installed and it will run Facetime.

    It will be thinner and lighter. It is expected that reported carbon fiber shells and Liquid Metal components will be used to cut the weight down. (My personal opinion is v.3.0.) Apple is also working on ultra thin glass panels.

    Possibly a new processor based on the ARM Cortex A9 chip will give faster speed, plus graphic support and memory will be improved.

    Expect improved displays, but maybe not fully to the level of Retina Displays.

    The next iPad is expected in Q1 2011, and there will be a major software upgrade to iOS next June.

    Apple has 95% of the tablet market and 80% of the prospective tablet buyers say they want an iPad. Apple is very detrmine to dominate this market. The are already the biggest PC maker. They will hold the price down while continueing to change the competition faster than they can keep up.

    My opinion is that these may happen and if so, another home run for Apple. I will wait to see on whether these things happen.

    Actually I'm in no hurry to be tempted to buy a new device. As far as I'm concerned it could be 2012, and I'd be content. Of course that would only give us a few months to use the device before the end of the world.

    Not a chance....Apple has consistantly refreshed their devices yearly...so the soonest you will see a new iPad is April and based on previous refreshes the only thing that will change will be more internal storage on this one. Maybe a cam on the next one.

    I would wait till Q3 2011 when Lion comes out...no doubt there will be a MacPad introduced ;)

    I really don't think I will be in for an upgrade this time around if the rumored changes come to be true. I like the form factor of the Ipad now and for what my needs are the speed and screen are pretty good. If a generation comes out with things like USB ports, memory card slots, etc. then I will probably be ready for an upgrade.

    You will never see an iPad with a memory slot and I wouldn't hold your breath for a standard USB connection (it already has USB btw). Externally the most you can expect is a camera, and probably not until gen 3.

    I think that the GSM/CDMA chip is a very good thing to hope for. It would allow other carriers like Verizon to offer a 3G model without a mifi device. It also could make an opening for the iPhone on other carriers. A recent study shows that 1/3 of buyers of smart phones would have bought the iPhone had it been available on their carrier.

    The 2nd gen is going to be extremely similar to the current version, apart from cameras. Probes not USB port as I remember Steve jobs commenting on them ages ago.

    With this in mind, there seems little point buying the 2nd gen really, as there's going to be no significant changes apart from cameras, maybe a bit lighter, but not by much.

    iPad 3rd gen is where we will see the tranformation.

    There is no official confirmation there will be a camera. Don't forget the iPod touch took 3 generations to finally get a camera

    While this is the first generation of ipad, is it accurate to say the ipad technology has been perfected in the past 4 years with the ipod touch? The ipad to me is simply the evolution of the touch. Maybe that's a bit too simplistic, but really I can't see what they'd introduce in the next version that I would HAVE to sell this one for.
