Second supplier reports about smaller upcoming iPad Earlier in the month, the popular Taiwanese daily Digitimes reported that Apple was creating a 7-inch iPad, almost three inches smaller than the current tablet.
Today, a second paper, Economic Daily News (EDN) is reporting the same thing, although with some details different from the first report.

EDN says the new device will weigh 500 grams, compared to the 700 grams of the current model. The paper says the device will use the same IPS display as the current model, while Digi's article said the device would get revamped with an OLED display.

The second report says Apple could release the new device as early as the end of 2010, although that seems unlikely.

Apple, of course, did not comment on the speculation.

ARGH!!! I hate it when people say that! The iPad has no phone! It is not an overgrown iPhone; it is an overgrown iPod touch.

I'm happy I don't support Apple, unlike their legions of mindless cattle buying anything branded Apple.
