Everyone seems to think that Apple is on a seriously accelerated product schedule when it comes to its tablets, and after last year’s arrival of two separate iterations of the full-sized iPad, they might just have point. We’ve already heard about the idea of the next iPad showing up sometime in March, and that timeframe is once again getting some attention thanks to a recent analyst report, also suggesting that the second-generation iPad mini could arrive around the same time.
Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets credits info uncovered from sources at the Consumer Electronics Show as leading to this conclusion. Like we’ve already heard about the rumored tablet, he says to expect a thinner, lighter design while still keeping the same screen size.
He also mentions that the next iPad mini should also debut in March, only noting that it would keep the same body we’re used to from the first version; that seems to lend credence to the idea that this new version would concentrate its upgrades on screen resolution and possibly the processor.
