Next gen iPad to have dual-mode chip support, dual cameras? One analyst has said today that Apple's upcoming second-generation iPad tablet will have a dual-mode chip that will support both EVDO and HSPA for 3G data connectivity.
Citing "supplier checks," Wedge Partners analyst Brian Blair has said the upcoming model will be a true "World iPad," supporting all carriers.

Current models will cease production by the end of January, as Apple readies the new edition.

The new model will also have rear and front facing cameras, features notably missing from the first generation device.

New models will also be significantly thinner with unibody construction, says Electronista.

For now, the description must be taken as rumor, although the details do directly correlate with supply checks that have cropped up over the past months.

And that shouldn't suprise anyone. A huge part of Apple's business model is planned obsolescence. Do you know of any Apple fanbois who have not replaced their Ipod or Iphone just to upgrade when their original device still works fine?
