iPad 2 is Already in Production
According to a recent article from the Wall Street Journal “Apple Inc. has started manufacturing a new version of its iPad tablet computer with a built-in camera and faster processor, said people familiar with the matter.”
The Wall Street Journal has an uncanny knack for getting Apple rumors right. That could be because these are controlled leaks. The prevailing wisdom seems to be that Apple and the WSJ have a cozy relationship, enabling Apple to get its message out in a controlled fashion while reinforcing the WSJ’s leadership position.
So when the WSJ declares that the iPad 2 is in production, there’s a very good chance they are dead on (said people familiar with the matter).
We can expect to see the iPad 2 unveiled within the next couple of months.
