ipad 2 -

Apple will begin producing the next iPad model in January 2012, according to a DigiTimes report.

DigiTimes (a daily newspaper dealing with the semiconductor, electronics, computer and communications industries in Taiwan and the Greater China region, says Wikipedia) reports that Samsung, LG and Sharp shipped one million high-resolution flat panels to Apple in October.

Shipments in November will be two million units, according to DigiTimes.

TPK Holding and Wintek, who develop the iPad's touch modules, are also expected to begin shipping their products to Apple this month.

DigiTimes' source said Apple's contract maker Foxconn Electronics is expected to begin production of the next iPad in January, judging by current shipment rates.

The site also reports that Apple is also reported to be testing a new 7.85-inch iPad display. The iPad 2 has a 9.7 inch display.

Developers have barely scratched with the current iPad2 specs can do, so I doubt the internals will be upgraded that much. more likely to be more memory, better screen, better cameras. Maybe they'll chuck in a bit more memory.

Agreed, thats the Apple way though and it seems to work for them. But, that doesn't make the current system any worse.

Hasn't the iPad 2 been out only a few months or so? It's going to be like the iPhone release schedule soon enough which is a shame.

Troll away.. Game-wise the iPad2 has offered me more unique gaming experiences than any other platform this year.

In fairness, Nintendo do seem to be doing pretty well with their remakes.

The iPad 2 has been my go-to device this year. My emails, IM, internet, Facebook/Twitter, magazines, books, music, videos, Skype and a huge amount of gaming.

I genuinely see this device as Sonys competitor in the handheld war. I'm not an Apple nerd. But, the iPad 2 is an incredible piece of hardware with a very cool OS. Looking forward to seeing what they do with the 3rd gen.
