More rumors: Apple to release 7-inch iPad this year, as well Analyst Erza Gottheil of Technology Business Research has suggested today that Apple could launch a 7-inch version of its iPad tablet this year.
The analyst, just like others in the industry, believes Apple will unveil the full-sized iPad 3 in early March for release by the end of the month.

Apple's upcoming tablet should feature a Retina Display screen with a massive resolution, a quad-core A6 processor, and Siri integration.

Additionally, both models will come with an optional wireless keyboard-case accessory.

A 7-inch tablet, depending on the price, would likely compete with the Amazon Kindle Fire, which has quickly become a major force in the market despite being launched very late last year.

Do you have a price and details? AD would love the exclusive :)

I'm a self confessed Apple fan, but I get tired of the rumors. I hope the iPad 3 is not as much of a let down as the iPhone 4S. If it doesn't have a retina display I'm gonna be disappointed.

No, I was just proving a point that people believe anything nowadays. I made the whole thing up.

Oh good........another Apple product to soon outdate itself a year later and consume our landfills from Apple-loving tards that need to update their 600 dollar product annually because the next model has an insignificant new feature.

Exactly... Good one. Apple will still overprice this unit that's still way too little, far too late. People are now tuned in to the fact you can get a product that can be completely functional at a good price point without being legally sodomized.

This is what I have to say to all the people that hate Apple:

I love Apple products and will buy nothing but to replace my phone or iPad! So crawl back in your dark troll caves and keep wishing you had the best products. We'll even let you out to buy Apple if you're nice! :-)

That's cool. Great scientists have been wrong on occasion too. We don't hate the people (well, maybe some of those that are tainted with a dark greed that has trumped their humanity), we are disgusted with a visible hypocrisy that surrounds the brand & loyal customer base.

What once was a humble 'tit for tat' game of Mac/Windows has now turned into what seems to be a cult of electronica. Kind of like what was going on with the Saturn dealerships back in the eighties & early 90s.

Now like Scientology, CrApple is building their giant spaceship in a giant field with dormitories & Cool-Aid stations & has enough money to literally buy god more times than it takes to fold a protein gene. Not to mention their motto is "Join Us..."

Every other form of religion (supposedly worth having) makes you work it. Cults make it easy for you.

All other technology offered to the public gives ou choices as to what you want to do with it. Let's you expand & play with it; make it your own. CrApple gives you one thing; conform or don't play. But yet it's real easy to use.

Other tech will allow you to remain you & be private if that is your wish. Cults keep you close, conformed & every bit of who you are is every bit their knowledge.

We just want you safe & sound. We just want our friends & family back.
