Wait, what? I'm sure that's what you said when you read the news title, but if Apple want to squish the market, they're going to have to do it ASAP as Android-powered devices are really ramping up from every single direction and 2011 will be no different.

This rumor from Taipei suggests that Apple are ready to drop the iPad 2 this month and have it on retail shelves by next month. We know the screen will be a Philips 9.7-inch XGA 1024x768 display with an insanely higher specced panel expected with the third outing of the iPad next year. Apple have also signed a patent for a carbon fiber material and there are some industry experts saying that the new material might make its way into the iPad 2 which would dramatically reduce the weight of the iPad 2.
