WSJ: Apple Has Started Production of the iPad 2

Posted February 8, 2011 at 6:56pm by iClarified
The WSJ is reporting that Apple has started manufacturing the iPad 2 with a built-in camera and faster processor.

The new iPad will be thinner and lighter than the first model, these people said. It will have at least one camera on the front of the device for features like video-conferencing, but the resolution of the display will be similar to the first iPad, these people said. It will also have more memory and a more powerful graphics processor, they said.

The report notes that the iPad will initially be available through Verizon and AT&T but not Sprint or T-Mobile.

A recent iLounge article hints that the iPad 2 could get a Carbon Fiber body, that Apple is working on RFID/NFC accessories, and that a 7-inch iPad is still being tested.

The iPad 2 may be in production but that does not mean it will produce something that we will consider "magic" or something that will "change everything" again when compared to these other tablets on the market. Here are 3 things that the iPad will need to kill its Android's Honeycomb platform:
