iPad 2: In production now, say ‘people familiar with the matter’

The next iPad is already in production, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal. The rumoured changes coming to the next iPad read like a list of Obvious Upgrades.

The WSJ expect it to be thinner, lighter, and faster (blank face), with at least one front-facing camera-no mention of a back camera here.

It should also come with more memory which should allow for better multitasking with apps, in tandem with a meatier graphics processor for streaming video and gaming fun. (Eyes start to glaze over.)

We’ve used a picture taken from CES in January- it’s an iPad 2 mock-up for  forthcoming iPad 2 cases, showing a slightly skinnier iPad.

The most interesting bit to come from the WSJ report is that “people familiar with the matter” say that the new iPad won’t be getting a renovated screen- they expect resolution to be similar to the current iPad. What, no eye-burning retina screen?

Apple are expected to up their tablet game, following a raft of tablet announcements by several companies, including BlackBerry’s PlayBook, the dual-core powered LG Optimus Tablet and Motorola’s Xoom. We expect to see more details revealed on all of these, and even more tablet announcements at industry show, Mobile World Congress.
