More iPad rumors
The rumors of a smaller iPad just won't die. A smaller iPad than the 10-inch one on the market now has been rumored for a long time. That tablet has so far not seen the light of day. Steve Jobs wasn't exactly for a smaller iPad, but the smaller tablets have proven to be reasonably popular on the market. Apple could surely rack up some impressive sales of a smaller iPad.
A new rumor is swirling that Apple will launch a smaller screen 7.85-inch iPad in Q4 2012. The smaller tablet will supposedly combat the Kindle Fire and other little tablets. Apple is selling iPad in droves with the tablet in general predicted to reach 60 million units for 2011.
Of that 60 million number, 70% will be Apple iPads. The 7.85-inch screens for the tablet are said to be coming from LG Display and panels will be provided by AU Optronics as well. The production of the panels are to kick off according to the rumor sources in Q2 2012.
