As per one of the leading unlocked cell phone blog site, although Apple is not typically known for varying their devices too much from one design to another to keep some continuity, It appears that they will be making a number of changes to the second version of the highly popular iPad. A source in China has stated that the company is already working on the second generation of the iPad and that the case will have a new design compared to the first model. The new case will be just a bit smaller and will measure 239 mm x 186 mm, which is a bit smaller than Apple’s current case which is just a few millimeters larger.
Although there is no way to verify this story, the fact that it was released with such exact stats would lead most to believe that it is probably true. The first generation of the iPad has been highly successful, paving the way for other tablet devices that are looking to enter a market that is getting more competitive by the day.
The iPad 2 will also have wide range speakers, according to the report. Apple has been quick to jump on an upgrade for their first tablet device. This is probably because the company has seen the onslaught of incoming competition with advanced features, and are looking to ensure that they are able to retain their current market share.
It will be interesting to see what changes about the device in the iPad 2. The first version was highly successful and changed the mobile industry forever with a simple announcement. The second version will hopefully be a huge upgrade over the first version in the same way that the unlocked iPhone 4 received a sizable update on its second release. The tablet marketplace has proven to be large enough to be considered a subsidiary to the mobile market in itself.
