Do you think this will be the 2gen iPad?

    The iPad is already thin as air. Could this be Apple's next release for the next device in the "Pipeline"?

    This is pointless. When apple releases the 2nd generation iPad next year, it will be what they decide... not someone on ifans.com

    The next iPad may very well be the "iPad Air"... but it may also be a touchscreen netbook with a keyboard. Who knows. How about we wait and see.

    The iPad JUST came out, and it hasn't even fully shipped international. I think we can wait a while before we begin speculation on the new iPad.

    The next in the pipeline are a refresh of the regular Macbook White, and a refresh of the Macbook Air, possibly with a Core i3 for the Air model, or a high-end Intel CULV coupled with the infamous GeForce 320M.

    And then they will call it a year with the announcement of iPhone HD and iPhone OS 4, then maybe an iPod Touch HD down the pipeline...

    To Apple, the iPad is already the perfect form factor, and I don't think they'll scale it up or down any time soon. On a brighter note, iPhone HD and iPod Touch HD may finally have at least 6 hours of operation each instead of the measly 2 hours when gamIng. That would coincide with rumors of a 800MHz A4 and half the battery capacity of the iPad...

    If this topic were a post, it would be sig worthy.

    No, Apple will never make an "iPad Air". The device already has an ideal form factor. The only size changes they will ever make are 1. possibly slight change in screen size (depending on what they do with the resolution in the future), and 2. maybe a slight thickness change.

    It's an interesting idea but I highly doubt it ever happening.

    I doubt it, it would feel weird to hold it. It be TOO thin, I actually think it's perfect now, it could be a little lighter though.
