Act Surprised, Apple Is Making iPad 2


Spies say Apple is already in production of the follow-up to last year’s iPad, and the upcoming model will include a feature that was conspicuously aspect from the original — a camera. The sequel will be lighter and boast more memory, as well as a superior graphics processor.

The Wall Street Journal spoke to unnamed sources who confirmed the iPad 2 will be available through Verizon and AT&T, just like the current model.

Apple has sold 14.8 million iPads so far, and the WSJ cites an analyst who says Apple will sell 27 million units this year.

If you own an iPad already, will you be able to sit this round out? If not, will a camera and boosted innards seal the deal for you?
