Report: Apple to Sell Three iPad Versions

Apple is preparing three versions of the iPad to be sold in 2011. The different iterations will support varied combinations of ways to access the Internet, Wi-Fi, UMTS and/or CDMA. Production on the new models will begin in late January, and will also include improvements to the anti-smudge and anti-reflective treatments to help compete against the Kindle. Sources estimate that Apple will ship out 40 million units of the iPad 2 in 2011, accounting for more than 65 percent of the computer tablet market.
