    I doubt they're going to do this, having multiple offerings of the same product with different screen sizes/resolutions is a developer's nightmare.

    The iPhone was also rumored to have multiple smaller offerings, none of which materialized.

    Also, the iPad has been on the market a scant few months. I doubt they would launch a new model so fast.

    I don't see it happening as these OLED models would probably cost more than the current models.

    The iPad has still not been officially rolled out in the majority of the world.

    With launches planned for the end of this month and more to come in September/October - add the continuing rollout of iPhone 4 (and it's possible recall) do you honestly believe in the same time scale they are going to shove out more ipads onto an Apple saturated market that they are themselves still finding difficult to supply demand.

    Logic and sense seems to evaporate when it comes to peoples desires.

    Nah... why WAIT UNTIL CHRISTMAS 2010? All of those apple fanboys are going to buy anything apple throw at them. They will put out at least 2 more ipads by this fall.

    ^This.

    Until they get their full first-round distribution completed they're not going to put a lot of time into a second version. There's too much money to be made yet for them before they hit the market a second time.

    Is it the same source that reported late last year/early this year that Apple took every OLED screen available in the market for ipad?

    It makes sense in fan boy stand point, it makes zero sense business stand point.

    Apple is already pushing their usual small product spread with the iPad. I mean, there are 6 items at 6 different price points. That's pretty unheard of for them. Imagine if they came out with two more models in 3 sizes. If 3G is included in them as well, then that is 18 different SKU's.

    Way too complicated for Apple's tastes.

    Besides, the whole purpose for the iPad is to bridge the gap between iPhone and MacBook. Anything smaller would be bridging the gap between iPhone and iPad, and you can't tell me there's a strong enough market for that to warrant new products.

    I don't see a new one coming so soon. Apple usually updates everything once a year. So, spring '11.
    All I want is a retina display, camera, more ram, slushie machine, android 2.2, scanner, sd card slot, and an app to find me a parking spot in downtown.

    I think the Apple engineers have enough problems with the iPhone to worry about newer iPads.

    I would love to see an ipad/ipod touch at 5.6 inches...need something bigger than the current ipod but still small enough to fit in a pocket. I agree though that it is unlikely any significant updates will happen in 2010.

    If anything is to happen in 2010 it could be a transition away from the ipod touch into making a small ipad instead of a "iphone w/o the phone", but that is also unlikely.

    looks like we'll just have to be happy with what we've got for now.

    Foolish mortals.

    "I WANTS NEW IPAD NAO, IN BOTH 5.6 INCH AND 7 INCH AND 45 INCH SIZES. WITH LAZERS AND MISSILES AND A VELOCIRAPTOR. AND STEVE JOBS NEEDS TO PERSONALLY HAND IT TO ME AND THEN SEXUALLY SERVICE ME."

    no new iPad in christmas 2010, don't be stupid.

    Bullcrap.

    Apple has wisely gone the IPS LCD route instead of OLED. I don't see them reversing that. I hope they don't. OLED has too many immaturity issues.
