UBM TechInsights, an information services provider for technology companies, has concluded that the iPhone 4's pairing of the gyroscope with the A4 processor could very well mean that the iPad will share these same components in the future.
TechInsight's senior analyst Steve Bitton speculates that the next-generation iPad will get the gyroscope because of the presence of an empty slot next to the processor. Additionally, the iPad also has an accelerometer, which combined with a gyroscope could be the perfect bait for game developers.
Both the iPhone 4 and the iPad have similar innards, so it's very likely that the gyroscope could find a new home in the tablet iDevice next year. You can check out the full TechInsights iPhone 4 teardown here.
