Rumors are swirling that Apple is developing a slimmer, lighter iPad with front and rear-facing cameras and a SD card slot.

Apple component suppliers in Asia told Reuters the next-generation iPad could ship out early next year. Touchscreen chip designer Wintek Corp, battery maker Simplo Technology Co Ltd and cover manufacturer Avy Precision all confirmed they were contributing to the next round of iPads, according to Reuters. Sources are claiming the main upgrades will be front and rear-facing cameras, and the device will be slimmer and lighter.

Speculation of an iPad 2 continued, when Apple Insider revealed leaked images of iPad 2 cases featuring a cutout for a camera and SD card slot. The cases were made by Shenzhen MacTop Electonics and Kodawarisan.
