Apple has stopped production of the iPad, get ready for iPad 2
Apple has stopped production of its first-generation iPad in order to clear room on the shelves for the newest version of the device, which will likely be unveiled at a Wednesday press event, according to 9to5Mac.
Shipments of the original iPad have presumably stopped, the report said; once retailers sell out of the stock they already have, it won't be refreshed. 9to5Mac also cited some retailers that said they could sell out of iPads as early as today.
This news isn't groundbreaking, however. Apple is hosting an event in San Francisco on Wednesday, where it's probable that the new iPad will be unveiled. Rumors of the next-generation iPad have been circulating for several months now. After Apple sent out official invites about a week ago, wish lists and reports of the device's features seem to be surfacing several times a day.
Among the most pervasive rumored features are dual cameras, a better screen, and sleeker form factors. There was also talk of a USB port and three version of the tablet: Wi-Fi, CDMA, and GSM.
