You know how that iPad makes you look cool? Sorry.

In a few months, you’ll be driving the OLD model. The Edsel. Rockin’ the 8-track there, Burt Reynolds. Does that thing get CB?

Apparently production is under way for the next version of the iPad to be launched early next year. All Things D reports that manufacturing of the current model is set to ratchet way down while millions of iPad 2s are being made. It will be thinner, have a front facing camera, and have a GSM-CDMA chip which makes it universally network compatible. So all those people getting AT&T iPads this Christmas can wait a few months and get a Verizon iPad 2. Suckers.
