iPad 2 Could Go Into Production In Q1 2011

The iPad 2 may be here as early as next spring. Rumors have been spreading among the tech blogs for months now about how the new iPad would not have a 7-inch screen and how the iPad 2 has already been photographed for advertising.

The latest news is from component suppliers, who are reportedly going into production on the new iPad in the first quarter of 2011.

Reuters has the latest story: “ Component suppliers for Apple Inc’s iPad are gearing up for a new round of production in the first quarter, sources said on Friday, with one saying the product will be a revamp of the popular tablet computer including front- and back-mounted cameras.”

The new iPad is reported to be slimmer and lighter than the first edition and have cameras on the front and rear, as well as a higher resolution display.
