How you wish the above is true.
Well, judging by the trouble some folks go to in creating the above mock-up concept design of the next generation iPad, that might well turn out to be the actual design once Apple unveils it early next year.
Design-wise it resembles an enlarged iPhone 4 with the same metal band around the edges and the same glass exterior. Additions include a front-facing 3-megapixel camera for FaceTime and an SD card slot for removable storage.
There’s also a mini HDMI output suggesting that you could hook up your iPad 2 to an HD Ready TV – FaceTime on a 32-inch plasma anyone?
