According to Digitimes, Apple is working on an updated anti-smudge, anti-glare treatment for screens that could be available with the iPad 2.The report also suggests that Apple will ship about 500,000-530,000 units to channels in January with shipment ratio of Wi-Fi, UMTS and CDMA models at 3:4:3, according to industry sources, citing upstream component makers.
The sources pointed out that about 60-65% of current iPad shipments are 3G models, indicating that consumers prefer models that are able to connect to the Internet all the time, therefore Apple is aiming to work even more closely with telecom carriers by offering more wireless solutions for iPad 2 to satisfy market demand.
Apple is “Working on strengthening the iPad 2′s anti-smudge and anti-reflective treatments in order to compete against Kindle and attract more consumers”.
In addition to the WiFi only and UTMS 3G versions that we’re used to right now, a CDMA version is in the works.
As Apple continues to cobble together its component manufacturers for the iPad 2, the suppliers are shedding light on what we can expect from the next generation iPad.
