Computer manufacturer Apple could be set to unveil its next-generation iPad as early as next week, it has been reported.

Various news providers have pointed to March 2nd 2011 as being the most likely launch date for the iPad 2, which is now believed to be in production.

The firm has reserved the main stage at San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts – the same venue where Apple launched the original iPad and iPhone 4 – for this date.

Apple is reported to have sold more than 15 million iPads in less than a year, with broadband deal subscribers helping to boost global adoption rates.

Consumers are able to purchase Wi-Fi enabled tablets, and also use the devices to support mobile broadband deals.

Industry insiders claim that the iPad 2 will be thinner and lighter than the original model, and also contain front and rear cameras.

However, Taiwan-based Yuanta Securities claimed this week that manufacturing issues will delay the commercial launch of the second-generation iPad until June 2011.
