Sell Mobile Phone In Order To Switch To IPad 2

Consumers across the UK – and indeed the world – could be preparing to sell their mobile phones in order to create a gap for the new Apple iPad 2.

Stuart Dredge, writing for CNET UK, explains the US manufacturer is to launch the new tablet at an event in San Francisco next week.

However, there is speculation about exactly what customers can expect for their money should they invest in the model and whether Apple has a third incarnation of the device up its sleeve for later this year.

Summing up other blogs and sources, Mr Dredge states: "[There's] a strong hint that the long-expected cloud/streaming iTunes is on the way, not to mention the recently rumoured revamp of MobileMe as an ambitious social-media locker service."

The original version of the iPad is the most popular tablet available to the public, with Frost and Sullivan this week revealing it enjoyed a 90 per cent market share in 2010.
