“Apple Inc. has started manufacturing a new version of its iPad tablet computer with a built-in camera and faster processor, said people familiar with the matter,” Yukari Iwatani Kane and Shayndi Raice report for The Wall Street Journal.
“The new iPad will be thinner and lighter than the first model, these people said,” Kane and Raice report. “It will have at least one camera on the front of the device for features like video-conferencing, but the resolution of the display will be similar to the first iPad, these people said. It will also have more memory and a more powerful graphics processor, they said.”
