There might be three versions of the iPad 2
The iPad 2 rumors are picking up pace as a speculated production start date is coming sometimes in the second half of January as opposed to February like some rumors suggested before. Also, there might be only three models of it available - either or a combination of Wi-Fi, UMTS and CDMA, unlike the present iPad that has three Wi-Fi and three Wi-Fi + 3G models.
Apple hopes to ship about 500,000-530,000 units in January with shipment ratio of Wi-Fi, UMTS and CDMA models at 3:4:3 – as reported by Digitimes. The less percentage of Wi-Fi only model is less as even in case of the existing models – the 3G versions sell more. This signifies that the consumers like to be connected at all times.
The iPad 2 is expected to be yet another market leader like its predecessor, and there are very few other brands to prove this wrong at this time.
