article imageNext-generation 'iPad 2' in development

By David James Young     Nov 28, 2010 in Technology
As rumours begin to circulate around the design and features of Apple's next-generation iPad, one publication in Taiwan has reportedly gotten the insider scoop.
PC World has received word from Economic Daily News, a Chinese-language newspaper based in Taiwan, that the new iPad - tentatively titled "iPad 2" - will go into production as early as this month.
Reports from the EDN also state that iPad 2 will be released in the first quarter of 2011.
Amongst the new features of the iPad 2 is the ability to make video calls, two cameras, a new display with advanced touch technologies and a USB port in order to connect with other devices.
It is also reported that Largan Precision will supply camera lenses, while Hon Hai Precision Industry (aka Foxconn) will be responsible for final assembly. Both companies declined to comment on the issue.
Although these could simply be rumours, the EDN has a history of Apple technology scoops - the paper was amongst the first publications in the world to report that Apple was working on a tablet, as opposed to a netbook, that would later become the original Apple iPad.
Newspapers in Taiwan are often able to secure insider information on technology as the nation's companies are involved with every step of production, from the components to the final assembly.
Apple is expected to make an official announcement regarding the iPad 2 in the coming weeks.
