Speculation: Apple Develops Components for iPad 2

Here’s an intriguing tidbit to fuel your weekend daydreams. According to Digitimes reports that Apple is currently sourcing components for the next iteration of the iPad, dubbed the iPad 2.

The tech giant is in the process of validating suppliers for touch screens and durable glass, gearing up for production of this second-generation iPad, slated for an early 2011 release.

Details are sparse on what upgrades the new iPad will feature, though speculation suggests a camera could be a likely addition. While it’s still a considerable wait until next year, the current iPad remains a solid purchase, especially since the upcoming iOS 4.2 update promises to rejuvenate even older models.

Nevertheless, the anticipation for another iPad release next year is almost palpable.
