If rumors going around the web are to be believed, the next version of iPad may come out just in time for Valentines Day 2011, equipped with a front facing FaceTime sex Chat camera, Retina Display, and Gyroscope.Which means that 3 months from now, you will be seeing the next gen iPad in all retail outlets.
Mass production of iPad with an initial shipment target of 400,00 to 600,000 units, is expected to commence in January 2011. Foxconn, the Taiwanese company that manufactured the first gen iPad is going to build the second gen iPads in their Chinese plants in Shenzhen.
The sources pointed out that the iPad 2 will ship as soon as the end of February in 2011. Apple originally planned to start mass production in January, but because the device’s firmware is currently still in testing, Apple has been postponing the schedule. Since Foxconn’s new plants in Chengdu are still in pilot production, iPad 2 will be mainly supplied by its Shenzhen plants, while the company’s upstream component partners have all been notified of the shipments schedule.
iPad 2 will reportedly be using BLUs (Back Light Units). So t here is no AMOLED screen for iPad 2, whichby the way is getting popular by the day with it’s presence on
Android phones including Samsung Galaxy S and the recently released Google Nexus S. Rather it will use a standard LCD screen with high resolution (Retina Display) and IPS (in-plane switching) which gives better viewing angles.
