The iPad has been an untarnished success for Apple, now it seems the company is set to introduce two new and smaller iPad models, just in time for Christmas! …
The Digitimes sources claimed Apple has “recently placed new iPad orders to Taiwan-based component makers for the fourth quarter of 2010 and the first quarter of 2011 with 9.7-inch, 5.6-inch and 7-inch models all included.”
That’s a slice from an article at 9to5Mac yesterday, covering a rumor that’s been getting a lot of coverage this week. It goes on to say that the smaller models would be aimed at the eBook market, with some slight changes made to current model.
This is a rumor that’s been around at least since the early days after the iPad launch – but it is one I can’t work up any real excitement about. The current iPad is already an ‘in-between’ device – the rumored new size seems just a step too much in that direction.
How about you all? Would you be keen on a new, smaller iPad?
