Amidst all the recent tablet launch rumors, there comes a new one. A Taiwanese newspaper has reported that Apple has begun to assemble components for a new 7 inch iPad in Taiwan.
The iPad 2 will have a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen display with IPS technology and a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. It will probably be using a Cortex A9 processor and will have 512 MB RAM (double that of the iPad).
It will also be lighter than the iPad, and should weigh around 500 gms.
None of these rumors are substantiated but according to most experts, we should be seeing a new iPad pretty soon.
The tablet space is seeing a lot of action. Samsung, Asus and MSI and Notion Ink, all are planning their own tablets. Most of them will be cheaper than the iPad and will run either Android or Windows 7.
