Reports said that Apple is planning to release a redesigned iPad, the "iPad HD", this coming fall with a 9.7" 2048x1536 pixel display.

Recent reports from “This is my Next” claimed that will be releasing its new “”, a higher-resolution iPad, later this year. The said launching will be scheduled along with the current , and will target consumers from the video and photo market. Few Apple apps, such as or , are also expected to be sold alongside the next-gen iPad.

“Our sources are saying that not only will there be a newly designed iPhone coming in the fall, but there is going to be a new entry into the iPad family as well.

This product is specifically said to not be the iPad 3, rather a complimentary piece of the iPad 2 line. Think MacBook and MacBook Pro.”

Our sources tell us that the company has been testing the new components in old iPhone cases, for obvious reasons.”

The design of the current iPhone 4 was said to have “fallen out of favor”. Thus, pushing the company to launch a redesigned version several months after the official debut of iPhone 4.
