You know rumors about an unannounced Apple product have reached critical mass when the Wall Street Journal chimes in. With the HP TouchPad now official, though, we're all curious to see what kind of competition Apple has in store.
According to the Journal, which quotes anonymous sources familiar with the company's plans, Apple has kicked off production of the second-generation iPad and plans to release it "in the next couple of months." The device will reportedly be available through both Verizon and AT&T. (Strangely, the report makes no mention of a Wi-Fi version.)
What about the hardware itself? The Journal expects a device "thinner and lighter" than the original with a faster processor, more memory, and "at least one" camera, but a display not too different from the current iPad's. I guess all those stories about the iPad 2 featuring a high-density display like the iPhone 4 were, well... just stories. Then again, perhaps Apple has an HD version of the iPad 2 in the works, as well—that wouldn't surprise me in the least.
