Component suppliers in Taiwan have indicated to one Wall Street analyst that Apple’s next-generation iPad will sport a 7-inch high-resolution Retina Display, a camera, and 128GB of capacity — and that it could sell 45 million in 2011.
Definitely some nice potential specs there for a smaller, iPad ‘Mini’ sort of model. The same analyst also says the new smaller model will have a micro or mini USB port, and that it will replace the first-gen iPad – which both sound very far-fetched.
When I first saw rumors about new 7 inch iPads, I thought they would not be of any interest to me. Thinking on it more, and seeing mockups like the one shown above, has me much more interested in a possible Mini model. I certainly would not want it to replace the current size though, I’d want it to be another option. What do you think? Would a new smaller iPad model be of interest?
