We’ll find out in a few weeks how many it sold this summer, but in its first quarter of sales, Apple’s iPad business generated more revenue than its iPod business — and half as much as the Mac.
But we expect a new, improved iPad by early next year. (Perhaps called the « iPad 2? ») And maybe even a couple of new iPads.
We don’t think Apple will make any huge conceptual changes — the current iPad works pretty well. But the 2011 iPads will almost certainly include more features, a different case design, and faster guts.
We’ve taken the liberty of making some mockups to give you an idea of what it might look like. To be clear, these are illustrations based on speculation — not leaked photos.
