World iPad

Nov 20, 2010 by

Apple is rumoured to be preparing for what is called the World iPad: an iPad that works with both CDMA and GSM networks pursuing the hope of making the magical tablet compatible with 3G carriers internationally.

“Apple is going to be ratcheting down production of the existing 3G iPad over the next two months in anticipation of ramping up a new World iPad that is powered by Qualcomm and will run on both GSM and CDMA based networks  around the world,” Wedge Partners analyst Brian Blair was quoted saying. This rumor was the result of another rumor about the upcoming iPhone including CDMA network connection for both USA and Chinese CDMA connections.
In addition, Blair says, “We understand it requires a new type of manufacturing process as a result, similar to the company’s unibody approach seen in MacBooks.”
Or someday, perhaps, with a carbon fiber body as detailed in a patent filing published Thursday
