Next Apple iPad to offer both UMTS and CDMA connectivity options, less reflective screen?

Another round from DigiTimes:

Apple is expected to release three versions of iPad 2, supporting either or a combination of Wi-Fi, UMTS and CDMA, for 2011 with mass production to start as early as the later half of January.

If DigiTimes’ sources are correct, this would mean there will not be a single iPad that runs on UMTS or CDMA networks, rather two different models, countering what most people believed based on prior rumors and speculation. The report claims that Apple will be set to ship over half a million iPad two units next month while they start mass production on them. That information signals in our opinion a late February / early March release. In addition to the rumored support of CDMA, it also appears Apple isn’t giving up on its screen technology as it is rumored to be working on better anti-smudge and anti-glare options for iPad displays. Let’s recap the most solid iPad 2 rumors so far:

  • Slightly thinner bezel
  • Slightly thinner body, tapered edges, flat back
  • Front and rear cameras
  • Better anti-smudge and anti-glare screen
  • Possibly a dual core 1GHz CPU
  • 512MB of RAM
  • Redesigned rear speaker, volume buttons
  • Verizon CDMA unit

T-Mobile myTouch gets reintroduced, 1GHz Snapdragon, 3.8" display, 4G speeds

Well, this one came out of nowhere… T-Mobile has just introduced the new myTouch, and it’s a beauty. Packed with a 1GHz Snapdragon MSM8255 CPU, 5 megapixel camera, 3.8″ display, and front facing camera, the new T-Mobile myTouch compliments the new T-Mobile G2, and pushes the myTouch lineup forward. T-Mobile is making video chat available over 3G networks not just Wi-Fi, which is a great feature, in addition to HSPA+, a pre-installed 8GB microSD card, and Android 2.2. The new myTouch will come in 4 colors, white, black, red, and plum, and it will be “available in time for the holidays.” So, what’s it going to be? G2 or the new myTouch? One more photo after the break followed by the press release! More →
