First Upgraded iPad Will Come In 2011, Says Digitimes Research

by Ferman Aziz

Some very interesting and secret news about Apple has just come in from an unusual source. It’s not any of the American sources but one out of Taipei, Taiwan called Digitimes that’s reporting through its research centre that Apple is all set to launch the next generation iPad in the first quarter of 2011. The tablet that took the world by storm within days of its launch earlier this year is getting a 9.7-inch screen, a new ARM Cortex-A9-based processor and 512MB RAM.

The company will also launch a 7-inch iPad using the Cortex-A9 processor and an IPS panel with a resolution of 1024×768, according to Digitimes Research senior analyst Mingchi Kuo.

Digitimes doesn’t stop there and goes on to reveal some more inside news about the up coming CDMA iPhone and Apple TV too. It claims that

Pegatron Technology is expected to start mass production in December and will supply to both US-based Verizon Wireless and China-based China Telecom. The CDMA iPhone’s back plate will be forged from metal materials and will feature an integrated antenna. Verizon is expected to announce the product at CES 2011 and will start shipping in January 2011. The sales ratio of GSM and CDMA iPhones in 2011 is expected to reach 65:35.

News about Apple TV claims that Apple will start mass producing the Apple TV in December using AMD’s Fusion solution and the device will not include a hard drive. Instead it will adopt a user interface similar to the iPhone with support for social networking websites, network multimedia and the App Store.
