New iPads, Metal Antenna Back for Verizon iPhone, Apple TV Without Hard Drive?

Digitimes is reporting that Apple will announced new iPads with upgraded processors, a Verizon iPhone with a metal antenna back, and an Apple TV with no hard drive.

Their report indicates that the 9.7-inch iPad will adopt a new ARM Cortex-A9-based processor and 512MB RAM in the first quarter of 2011. They also expect Apple to launch a 7-inch iPad using the Cortex-A9 processor and an IPS panel with a resolution of 1024×768. iLounge recently predicted a 7-inch iPad as well.

In regards to the iPhone, Verizon is expected to announce a CDMA version of the device at CES 2011. The CDMA iPhone's back plate will be forged from metal materials and will feature an integrated antenna. TechCrunch recently gave credence to the rumor that Verizon would get the iPhone in January.

Finally, Apple will reportedly launch a new Apple TV using AMD's Fusion solution and will not include a hard drive. The new device will adopt a user interface similar to the iPhone with support for social networking websites, network multimedia and the App Store. Mass production of the device will start in December. Engadget has also predicted a new Apple TV without a hard drive.
