A second-generation iPad, featuring both front and rear cameras, could be set to hit the shelves in early 2011, it has been reported.
International news agency Reuters claims that a number of sources close to Apple are expecting a revamp for the popular tablet which could be good news for mobile broadband fans.
Component suppliers for the iPad are believed to have been informed about the changes, ahead of modified production during the first quarter of next year.
One informant told the news provider that two cameras will be included in the design, which will be slimmer and lighter than the existing iPad.
He suggested that the new model will feature an even higher resolution display, potentially boosting its popularity further.
Writing for the Inquirer, Nick Farrell said the front and rear cameras looked like something of "a no-brainer" for Apple, as the firm aims to refine its flagship product.
"These were the two things that could have easily have been in the first iPad but weren't and are simple and cheap to change," he noted.
