Digitimes Research consults its Tarot cards
Fruity peddler of broken dreams Apple is set launch an upgraded 9.7-inch iPad in the first quarter of next year, according to Digitimes Research.

The iPad will have a new ARM Cortex-A9-based processor and 512MB RAM. Meanwhile, the company will also launch a 7-inch iPad using the Cortex-A9 processor and an IPS panel with a resolution of 1024×768.

All this is thanks to the research and drawing of tarot cards by Digitimes Research senior analyst Mingchi Kuo. He said that Pegatron Technology is expected to start mass production of the CDMA iPhone in December and will supply to Verizon Wireless and China-based China Telecom. The CDMA iPhone's back plate will be forged from metal materials and will feature an integrated antenna rather than the broken outer antenna.

Verizon is expected to announce the product at CES 2011 and will start shipping in January 2011.
Apple is also predicted to launch a new Apple TV using AMD's Fusion.  The gear will not include a hard drive and will have a user interface similar to the iPhone with support for social networking websites, network multimedia and the App Store.
