7.85-inch iPad comes in Q3 according to Supply Chain Rumor

The 8-inch iPad 3 rumor is back.

In February a report appeared claiming Apple is testing an 8-inch iPad form factor. Today Digitimes reports that Apple is going to ship a 7.85-inch iPad in Q3 of 2012. As already explained in this article, the only advantage of an 8-inch iPad is price. Apple is rumored to already be attempting to put pressure on the uprising low-end tablet market with the release of an 8GB iPad on March 7th. An iPad with a smaller screen could drive the price down to $249, making it almost impossible to say no to the iPad.

The 7.85-inch iPad is likely still an iPad 3. Though it is also possible that it is based on the current iPad 2 to keep cost down even further.

Apple is unveiling the iPad 3 on March 7th. We do not expect to hear anything about a smaller iPad at that event.
