8″ iPad prototype tested by Apple


Consistent with element suppliers in Asia, Apple could quickly unveil a smaller model of the iPad.&#a hundred and sixty;The present iPad 2 utilises a 9.7” display (and so too will the upcoming iPad three), however this small iPad would use an eight” reveal.

Android companies have become well known for releasing tablets of all shapes and sizes; Samsung in particular have produced a dizzying array of Galaxy Tabs with various screen dimensions, including the recently released Galaxy Tab 2 at 7”. Apple may be looking to take a piece of the 7-8” action, so this could be their first step.


With a premium iPad 3 on the way, an iPad 3 Nano could certainly be on the cards. We may find out more about this model on the rumoured March 7th event, but I’d bet that a shipping version is still many months out at best.
