Hot rumors about Apple’s next version of the iPad are out today, and they include news about it’s screen size and new CPU. According to Digitimes Research,¬†Apple is replacing the Apple-built A4 processor with a faster Cortex-A9 (the A4 would continue to be used in the iPhone 4, presumably) and upgrading the 256MB of RAM to 512MB. They also hint that a 7-inch version of Apple’s tablet is coming, but will still feature the same 1024×768 resolution as the 9.7-inch original. Perhaps the Super Retina Display highly publicized for the iPhone 4 will find its way into these new tablets. We could see these tablets announced and released as early as the first quarter of 2011. Keep your fingers crossed.
