While this may not come as much of a surprise, given that we're well underway into February, but according to The Wall Street Journal, Apple has begun to manufacture the latest and greatest iPad, that sources are saying should contain a built-in camera as well as a faster processor. The new tablet should also be thinner and lighter than the first edition.
The unit should see at least one camera on the front for options such as video-conferencing, but despite various rumors, the resolution will be similar to what the first iPad offers. Apple has been reported to be having trouble improving the display technology, because of the iPad's larger screen compared to the iPhone. Users should also see more memory as a well a more powerful graphics processor, according to people familiar with the matter.
The sources also said that the new iPad would initially be available for sale through Verizon Wireless and AT&T, but Sprint Nextel and T-Mobile USA users would be left out in the cold.
Apple's spokeswoman declined comment.
