While Apple CEO Steve Jobs claimed that 2011 would be the year of the iPad 2, the company may be planning to launch a revised iPad this fall with a much sharper screen. Reportedly dubbed the "iPad HD," the device would feature a 9.7" 2048x1536 pixel display geared toward "pro" users
According to sources for This is my next, the new iPad technically would be a variant of the current iPad 2, in keeping with Jobs' "year of the iPad 2" proclamation earlier this year. The higher resolution device would instead be geared towards more advanced users—"think MacBook and MacBook Pro," according to This is my next. It would also be compatible with "something like" iPad versions of Final Cut Pro or Aperture.
