Like they always say (whoever “they” are) if you wanna know something, just follow the money. Well, that seems to be true with Apple’s future plans for the next generation iPad. According to analysts at investment bank Goldman Sachs, the next generation iPad is expected to hit the shelves in the spring of 2011 (2nd quarter 2011).

Specifically leading to Hon Hai, who is expected to remain the exclusive manufacturer of the new 9.7 inch iPad. Some features that are expected with the next gen iPad – a camera, mini USB port, and lighter design… and hopefully a lower price!
