iPad 2 landing in time for gift giving season?
Rumors in the Apple world are a dime a dozen and they circulate in a never ending stream. The latest rumor claims that Apple is set to launch a smaller 7-inch screen iPad in time for this Christmas. The source of the rumor is a bit easier to believe than sources of other Apple rumors we have heard.
The rumor comes by way of Taiwanese newspaper Economic Daily News. This publication was one of the first to accurately state from sources that the iPad was going to be a tablet, not a netbook. The publication is citing its sources again that claim several Taiwanese firms are actively working on parts for the iPad 2.
The new iPad is said to have a 7-inch screen with the same IPS tech as the current iPad. That screen is supposedly coming from Chimei Innolux with touchscreen tech coming from Cando Corporation. The rumor also claims that the iPad 2 is being built by Compal Electronics.
