According to Goldman Sachs, Apple will launch a slimmer, lighter iPad in the second quarter of 2011. If you'll recall, Apple announced the iPad in January and it launched a few months later, in early Q2. Bloomberg cites GS analysts that say the new iPad will keep the same 9.7-inch display but could be thinner and lighter, with a built-in camera and mini USB. The analysts also said that the much-rumored 7-inch iPad has yet to be finalized.
Though its unclear as to why Apple might want to make the already slim iPad even thinner, the addition of a webcam is a no-brainer and has been expected ever since Apple revealed its FaceTime video calling application at the iPhone 4 launch in June.
