New iPad 2: 7-inch tablet by Christmas?

By Posted 17 Aug 2010, 15:42

We recently mentioned that Apple is already working on a smaller iPad; more news has come-to-light that the 7-inch iPad 2 tablet will be with us by Christmas. This is hard to believe, why would Apple launch the new tablet device one-month before its current cycle?

Dan Nystedt from IDG News has written on PC World stating that a recent Taiwanese newspaper report is now the second report of an early release – so is there some truth into these latest rumors? The idea of a smaller iPad certainly makes sense, as it will be ideal for those who feel that the current iPad is just too large.

We do not know if there will be any changes to the design of the iPad, will it come with a front-facing camera to utilize FaceTime, or more RAM as the iPhone 4 has? These are all questions that will not get answered until Apple decided to unveil the details – not unless one gets left in a bar by mistake.

Maybe Apple will release a new smaller iPad just before Christmas; this would be the perfect time for a sales boost. This could help them gain back some of the revenue lost for supplying free iPhone 4 cases and bumpers.

What do you expect from the new 7-inch iPad?

    I want it to have the same specs as the original iPad, just smaller, it's to soon for a new iPad already, my big hope is that there isn't a 7inch iPad, because I like the large 9.7 inch iPad, I want them to wait till 2011 spring, to upgrade, give a year, like they do with every other apple device.

      I agree! I always wait for 2nd generation items before making a purchase. This way you get an improved product.

    I'm torn about the iPad sixe's if an iPad 2 is released

    iPad (1st gen)
    -Nice Sized Screen
    -Good tech specs (more RAM???)

    iPad 2 (TBD)
    -Cheaper (would have an iPad 1st gen if it was cheaper)
    -ugh… Smaller.

    I think that the new iPad should be a little bigger. I am having trouble with a small iPad when using the app splashtop.

    Why would they change the size of the screen, i reckon 9inch would be better.

    I say you make different size screens just like a notebook or monitor and price it as set for screen size
