According to a report on the Wall Street Journal, production of the iPad 2 is now underway.
The article describes the new model as being thinner and lighter than the original, which launched in New Zealand on July 23rd, 2010.
If the report is to be believed, the successor will have “at least one camera on the front” to support video-conferencing.
The resolution of the display is said to be similar to the first iPad but it will have more memory and a more powerful graphics processor, WSJ reports, citing “people familiar with the matter”.
iPad 2 will also be initially available through Verizon Wireless and AT&T and not Sprint Nextel or T-Mobile in the US.
