iPad 2 already in development, with OLED screen?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on April 19th, 2010

Looks like Apple may have version 2.0 of the iPad in the works already, with sources claiming that development has already begun. And if you believe the rumors, the screen is about to get an OLED makeover.

OLED displays are more vibrant than the LCD panels currently in the iPad, but so far are too expensive to use cost-effectively in anything larger than a mobile phone. However, analysts are predicting that OLED prices will drop eventually, but not until at least 2011. If the iPad 2.0 was to have an OLED screen and be released with Apple’s traditional update schedule, it’s unlikely the prices would drop in time.

So we are calling this one too far-fetched for right now.
