The Apple rumor mills are churning away and this time it’s about the iPad HD, the follow-up to the Cupertino, CA-based company’s successful tablet, the original iPad and iPad2.

Supposedly, the new iPad will hit stores this September or October, around the same time as the iPhone 5 will launch. The new iPad will boast a brighter screen.

Sources also say the tablet will also be marketed as a pro-model for photographers who work with photo and video content, which means that the price points will be much higher that the original iPad.

Reports Yahoo! and This Is My Next:

Apple is said to have an iPad-friendly version of either Final Cut Pro or Aperture to go along with the iPad HD. And the device “is specifically said to not be the iPad 3, rather a complimentary piece of the iPad 2 line,” writes Topolsky, similar to the MacBook-MacBook Pro relationship. 

News of a new, high-end iPad is corroborated by FBR Capital analyst Craig Berger, who says that Apple likely has an “iPad 2 Plus” in store for the holiday season. That device, says Berger, will have a pixel density of 250-300 ppi, which adds more weight to the double-resolution screen. Berger stipulates, however, that “we await more confirming data points from other supply chain contacts before fully believing a new iPad device is coming in 2011.”
