WSJ: Apple Has Started Production of iPad 2

by on February 8th, 2011

Here we go again. Apple rumours don’t have any weight until Yukari Iwatani Kane writes about them on the Wall Street Journal. She’s been fairly accurate in the past thanks to her “sources”. The latest rumour is that Apple has started production of the next iPad:

Apple Inc. has started production of a new version of its iPad tablet computer, said people familiar with the matter.

The new device will be thinner, lighter and will come with a faster processor, more memory and a more powerful graphics processor, said the people familiar with the matter. It will have a front-facing camera for the first time for features like video-conferencing, but the resolution of the new iPad’s display will be similar to the first iPad, they said.

The new iPad will be available through Verizon Wireless and AT&T Inc., but not Sprint Nextel Corp. or T-Mobile USA in the U.S., according to some of the people familiar with the matter.
A spokeswoman for Apple declined to comment.

So…thinner, lighter, faster, more memory, better graphics, front-facing camera, but same resolution screen. Sounds about right with all the rumours we’ve been hearing.
