The current iPad is available as Wi-Fi-only and as a UMTS and Wi-Fi model.
Apple will produce UMTS, CDMA and Wi-Fi models in a ratio of 4:3:3.
500,000 iPads should already be assembled by the end of January, with release expected in April.
Most current research reports claim that about 65 percent of all worldwide iPad shipments are the UMTS model.
Apple is ready to ship 16 million iPads by the end of the year, with 2 million or so expected to still be on retailer shelves come January.
The company will produce 40 million iPads next year, adds the report.
