The upcoming iPad 2 and iPhone 5 details indicate that a shift to Qualcomm chipsets will be used. This shift will also be done on the next generation Apple TV from what we understand.

The new iPad will feature a dual GSM / CDMA chipset produced by Qualcomm and will mark Apple’s shift away from Infineon as its chipset maker to Qualcomm for all of its mobile devices. It’s not clear if the chipset being used will be based on the company’s EV-DO / HSPA Gobi variety or an entirely new design. Presumably, the strength of the new dual-mode chipset is that it will allow both Verizon and AT&T to offer the iPad simultaneously.

The iPad 2 is to get 2 cameras . The screen will be higher resolution and akin as the Retina Display on the iPhone 4. It will still be a 9.7 inch device.

The iPad 2 and iPhone 5 will continue to follow the yearly release cycle which means the iPad 2 should show up early April and the iPhone 5 in June sometime. As for the Apple TV, that will be later on this year.
