Faster and lighter, the new Apple iPad 2 is already in production says the WSJ
The WSJ has been in contact with a source "familiar" with the Apple iPad 2 and has been told that the tablet is already in production. Not only is the new model thinner and lighter, but it also sports a front facing camera and support for Face Time. Also expected to be improved is the speed of the graphics processor along with an increase in memory. Not everything will be different as the screen will have the same 1024 x 768 resolution.

The paper is also reporting that AT&T and Verizon will be offering the Apple iPad 2, meaning that Sprint and T-Mobile will be shut out. The Journal's sources expect a launch of the iPad 2 some time in the next two months, priced within the $499-$829 range of the current model.

Since the initial release of the iPad, Apple has sold 14.8 million units. Brokerage firm Piper Jaffrey expects the Cupertino based firm to sell 27 million iPads in 2011 with some estimates reaching as high as 35 million.
