Digitimes Research senior analyst Mingchi Kuo says that Apple will be launching an upgrade to the current 9.7-inch iPad which will use a new ARM Cortex-A9-based processor. The kicker is that they may have a newer, 7-inch model in the works running on the Cortex-A9. We've heard such rumors before.

According to Digitimes, mass production of a the CDMA iPhone complete with a metal backplate integrated to the antenna. They expect such a device to be announced by Verizon at CES 2011.

They finish the rumor dump with speculation of the previously rumored Apple TV, with an interface that mimics the popular iDevices. 

Keep in mind that this is really nothing but research and educated guesses based on the market. It's no doubt that Apple is planning an iPad upgrade, perhaps even the smaller model. We've heard rumors of an Apple TV reboot before, so know that it's just a bunch of research guys using what makes business sense.
