Apple preparing iPad 2.0

Tech giant Apple is preparing a new iPad that is thinner than the original and will be able to work on several different 3G networks.

According to a new report in the Wall Street Journal, the new iPad will feature a Qualcomm chip that will enable the gadget to work on both CDMA and GSM networks, meaning the gadget could be used overseas.

“Recent checks suggest Apple is going to be ratcheting down production of the existing 3G iPad over the next two months in anticipation of ramping up a new World iPad that is powered by Qualcomm and will run on both GSM- and CDMA-based networks around the world,” Wedge Partners analyst Brian Blair told the publication.

Blair also said he expects Apple to build 48 million iPads next year, with the new version to be built out of a single piece of metal.
