7" Apple iPad is already a "finished product" and looks similar to the iPhone 4?
This article contains unofficial information.
In fact, it appears as though that Apple already has a “finished product” for its 7” iPad, but there are apparently 5 other designs floating around to help keep prying eyes from leaking the final product. As we're beginning to see now, the sweet spot for tablets can be found in the 7” size – which is probably why Apple is trimming down with their next tablet.
Naturally, the smaller design would also translate to a cheaper price tag – which would definitely bode well for consumers as the tablet market continues to become fierce over the coming months. Since Apple firmly has a grasp on the tablet market right now, they can seemingly dictate the pricing of other competing tablets. When you look at the bigger picture, other manufacturers will need to modify the pricing of their tablets to better compete with the pricing that Apple will grace its next tablet – so yeah, it'll be intriguing to see how the market will play out.

All I wanna know is if it's gonna include the Retina display.

Right? I think that should have been in the first iPad, but obviously, it was an introductory thing. I hope they release the next 10" with a camera though.

Seems alright. I just hope Apple brings along PROPER updates (hardware and sofwtare) this time. Why I say this is, remember the iPhone 2G 3G and 3GS. All pretty much the same.
FEatures I hope Apple will implement in the next iPad:
>Retina Display / A super high resolution
>Front facing camera. At least better than VGA resolution.
>Rear Camera, 5mp or 3mp
>An option for Mac OSX Table edition instead of iOS.
>SD card slot
