Multiple (unnamed) sources are coming forth and spreading some news sure to bring holiday cheer to some: the iPad 2 is on its way with a pair of built-in cameras.
As reported by Reuters,
Component suppliers for Apple Inc's iPad are gearing up for a new round of production in the first quarter, sources said on Friday, with one saying the product will be a revamp of the popular tablet computer including front- and back-mounted cameras.
Reuters also acknowledges the fact that Apple is known to make announcements around the first month of the year naturally as it fell in line with Macworld. Last year, the iPad was unveiled on January 27. It was just seem plain weird if Apple didn't announce something big next month.
Reports have already swirled earlier this week about 400,000 to 600,000 units of the second-gen iPad shipping within the next three months.
