It's hard to believe, but the iPad is very nearly old technology already. Now the latest intelligence is offering more details about the unofficially nicknamed "iPad 2." It will be even lighter, thinner, faster, and boast more memory and a front-facing camera to take advantage of FaceTime video chat, reports the Wall Street Journal, citing sources. But its resolution won't be boosted significantly, and the 9.7-inch display screen size will remain the same. AT&T and Verizon Wireless will carry the new iPad, but Sprint and T-Mobile won't, according to the newspaper. Apple's not officially talking about its new baby just yet.
