			Apple Intending To Release a 2nd iPad!

The iPad (or should I call it the ‘iPad 1′ now?) was released on the April, 2010 and I can smell a new iPad in the air because Apple has always followed a distinctive pattern in their product release. Doubt in mind? Looks like I have to prove this to you! Ok, iPhone was first released on January 9, 2007. Then the second version of iPhone –The iPhone 3G was released on July 11, 2008 and then came the iPhone 3Gs on June 19, 2009 and finally came the iPhone 4 on June 24, 2010. So do you have any idea now? About the release date of iPad 2? I know you got it just like I did! I strongly believe that this will hit the market within Q1, 2011 and though we have news that it will hit the market this January or near the first week of February. But I will still say that if  Apple follows their previous pattern then you will get the iPad 2 in the April of 2011.

Enough talking already on the release! So what are the changes Apple are bringing to their iPad 2? Will there be a big upgrade to its software only or there will be both hardware and software upgrade? Some news has been leaked about its specifications from very reliable sources. Take a look on its probable changes –

Cameras & Gyroscope- Apple intends to add the feature called the Facetime in the iPad 2 Meaning that it will have both front and back cameras on it. Several sources have supported this news leak. Apple also intends to incorporate the Gyroscope in the upcoming iPad 2, though it is not supported by many!

USB or MicroUSB? – Its heard that iPad 2 will have a USB port but I personally don t support that as Apple intends to remain wireless so why will they introduce USB port? But I will suppose that there will be a MicroUSB in it which will make it fit for the EU requirement on mobile device chargers.

Will There Be a SD Card Slot And Will It Support GSM Or Will It Be CDMA?- It may have a SD card slot as recent released photos of iPad  case has come up  with a port. Apple also intends to release a iPad that can be Global meaning that it will be capable of using both the GSM and CDMA networks.

			Apple Intending To Release a 2nd iPad!

Thinner iPad With Retina Display- I think we are looking towards a thinner iPad this time like the MacBook and there is a great possibility that it will have the Retina Display but I think they cango for a smaller display(may be 7 inch) this time like its competitors.

Faster Processor With More Memory- Speculators says that there may be a 2GHz processor . I also heard that the processor may be based on ARM’s Cortex A9, the 1GHz dual-core processor. iPhone 4 has memory of 512 MB and the iPad has only 256MB of memory. So there is a great chance of increasing the memory size by Apple since it may have the Facetime, Retina Display and Multitasking.

So Apple lovers keep your fingers crossed! As very soon you will have a new product that will again shook the market like it did every time Apple released their new products. Will it be a successful one? I personally don t doubt that!

Andrew Wylegala is the U.S. and Foreign Commercial Serivce’s Senior Commercial Officer in Hong Kong.

San Francisco’s economy is tourists, bankers, Craigslist and, of course, Twitter.  Wrong spot to send a government export promoter looking for more Made in the USA material to help reach the President’s National Export goal of saving or creating some two million jobs by 2015.

Maybe not.

I’ve opted to stop in the services city by the bay en route to the annual Asia Pacific Business Outlook Conference held at the University of Southern California’s business school, where this year 180 US firms will come for updates on Asian markets and export tips, and to hear from Secretary Gary Locke.  The Commercial Service, part of the International Trade Administration, an operating unit in Mr. Locke’s Department, assigned me to Hong Kong to work on behalf of U.S. companies and economic interests about three years ago.  I’ll be joined at the conference by a dozen of my colleagues similarly positioned in other Asian capitals to do the same export enhancing work.  This year I’ve opted to stop in San Francisco to meet with current and future U.S. exporters, in addition to those meeting us in LA for the seminars and one-on-one counseling sessions.

 Build it…and They Will Export!

Left to right: Commercial Officer Douglas Wallace, Commercial Officer Andrew Wylegala, and Sculptor/Manufacturer, Capitano di Minuzie Nikolas Weinstein stand on the Weinstein Studios shop floor.

I am standing in the middle of Nikolas Weinstein’s glass sculpture studio located improbably enough behind a Mission District laundromat.  And I am trying to decide which is more shocking — the 30′ undulation of helix-shaped glass tubes of a work in progress, suspended above the furnace, forklift and flat-panel displays of this compact factory, or the discovery that precision manufacture on an industrial scale can still be carried out in San Francisco.  Downtown San Francisco!  We ARE  talking export manufacture.  The vast majority of Nick’s work is destined for grand residences and luxury hotels overseas, mostly in Asian cities such as Singapore and Shanghai.  And we are talking BIG exports.   I learn that — at over 250′ unfurled — the glass “fabric” of a work now soaring above the lobbies of a Shanghai luxury hotel (looking in the glossy photos like one of those Chinese acrobat’s ribbons) and comprised of some 35,000 hand-worked glass tubes, would not have fit in the 747 that brought me here from Hong Kong overnight.  And we are talking innovation.  To execute the unique forms of a Weinstein chandelier I now recall visiting at a Gehry-designed bank headquarters next to the re-constructed American Embassy in Berlin, Nick’s team even had to invent a special matrix bed for the in situ kiln.

But Nick is explaining that it is not finding more projects in booming Asia, nor the glass- and mind-bending technical complexity of his shapes, nor even the delivery headaches of the fragile works that keep him up at night.  It turns out that the chain of glass blowers, metal formers and ceramic suppliers needed to execute these fantasies in glass is nearly as long as some of his installations.  And the nature of this work — one-off, site-specific projects whose execution requires endless iteration of tweak and turn — is such that relative proximity is a must. 

So this preview stop of my Business Outlook Conference tour reveals a snapshot as complex and organic as a Weinstein: the offering of conceived- and fabricated-in-the U.S. product remains as rich as ever, but the challenge of keeping U.S. production chains short enough that they remain linked is a daunting one.  I am thinking that U.S. export growth can be part of the solution to this challenge, by providing Nick’s manufacturer partners with sufficient scale and income to stay in business and in Nick’s “neighborhood.”  Should this prove to be the case, we will not only reach that National Export goal but also prove to the world that, “yeah, we DO still make stuff in the U.S.”  The best stuff.
