Apple will launch a second-generation iPad in early 2011, featuring upgraded specs and a slightly smaller screen size, reports suggest.
According to Bloomberg, sources told analysts at Goldman Sachs that the new device will be launched in spring.
It will feature a 9.7-inch display, a built-in camera and mini USB port, and will probably be thinner and lighter, analysts Henry King and Kevin Lu said. They added that Hon Hai Precision Industry Co will likely be the supplier.
Despite rumours in the Taiwanese press, a smaller, seven-inch version of the iPad has not been finalised, King and Lu claimed.
Apple has declined to comment on the reports.
