Apple’s overseas touch panel and reinforced glass suppliers are said to be preparing for the launch of Apple’s second-generation iPad in the first quarter of 2011.

According to Taiwanese industry publication DigiTimes, the suppliers are completing validation for the second-generation iPad, which will maintain the same 9.7-inch screen when it debuts in the first quarter of 2011.

"Component suppliers of iPad are expected to start shipments for the second-generation iPad at the beginning of 2011," the report said.

Well there’s a rumor you’ve gotta love if you’re an iPad fan (unless you bought one yesterday I guess).  I think it’s very obvious by now that a new model will have cameras and FaceTime.  Hopefully we’ll also see a boost to 512MB of RAM at least and some other incremental improvements.

Sign me up for pre-order / launch day pickup whenever the next model comes along. Smile
