iPad 2 could arrive as soon as February

Rumours have the next-gen tablet already in production

It is being reported that the next generation of the Apple iPad is currently in production at Foxconn in Taiwan.

The rumours are suggesting the new tablet is being constructed from Taiwanese components with a view to having the first 400,000 to 600,000 units ready for delivery in the next 100 days.

With delivery coming in the next 100 days that would put the new device's arrival some time in February or March probably and given the volumes it will probably be launched in the US first in a similar way to the first generation iPad.

Foxconn has declined to comment on the rumours which surfaced on Asian IT newswire DigiTimes.

Thanks CVG.
