Another pulsating rumor that has just surfaced is the production of two second generation iPad versions – CDMA and GSM. While the CDMA version is going to use a Qualcomm chip, the GSM version will make use of a Infineon chip. Apple Inc. is expected to launch the iPad 2 in the first quarter of 2011, reported a website from Taiwan. This news comes just in the wake of the World Mobile Congress that is going to take place in Barcelona from February 14-17 this year. At this Congress, both Motorola and Samsung are expected to launch their respective Xoom and Galaxy 2 tablets that run on Google’s Android OS.
Though no official confirmation of the news about the launch is available from Apple yet, it is being rumored that the production of 2nd generation iPads is already on the way and around 5 million units are expected to be produced during the first quarter.
