Apple planning a smaller iPad

Post by immesd on Sun Jul 22, 2012 6:24 pm

The hunter becomes the hunted. Google's Nexus 7 has been dubbed by some as the "iPad killer", given its nifty features at half the price of the cheapest iPad. Well, all that talk may about to be reversed.

Bloomberg quotes "two people with knowledge of the plans" as saying that Apple is working on a smaller, cheaper version of the iPad that may debut in time for the holiday season. The smaller iPad will "have a screen that's 7 inches to 8 inches diagonally, less than the current 9.7-inch version".

The smaller screen would allow Apple to keep the costs in check, and the "iPad Mini" may be priced around the *199 mark. This would pit the smaller iPad straight against the likes of Google's recently announced Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire.

"It (smaller iPad) would be the competitors' worst nightmare," Shaw Wu, an analyst at Sterne Agee & Leach Inc., told Bloomberg in an interview. "The ball is in Apple's court."
