Still some speculation iPad follow-up may be delayed until June

According to a Reuters source, the Apple iPad 2 is expected to launch March 2, despite speculation that the release of the tablet may be delayed to June.

A source told Reuters that Apple is planning a release schedule similar to the first iPad, which went on sale April 2010. Apple is slated to host an event March 2, where another source says the company will unveil the new iteration of the popular tablet.

But, according to a Yuanta Securities note, the next version would come out two months later than the original iPad because component makers were forced to alter their production processes after Apple made changes to the design

In other tablet news, it appears that Verizon will be charging new Motorola Xoom and Galaxy Tab users their first month's data charges at activation. This policy will of course have no effect on Wi-Fi-only models.

Think, the iPhone has a smaller screen, but still displays the keyboard in the same percentage of screen real-estate.
All Apple had to do was make the iPad keyboard smaller, they can do that without any change in screen res...
