A report by WSJ today suggests that rumors about the iPad mini might be true. According to its sources,”Apple Inc.’s Asian component suppliers have started mass production of a new tablet computer smaller than the current iPad”. The smaller iPad is to “stay competitive against rivals such as Google Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. that are offering smaller, less-expensive alternatives to the iPad”. It goes on to say “the smaller tablet will have a 7.85-inch liquid-crystal display with a lower resolution”. Apple did not comment about the rumor. so all that we can do for the time being is sit back and see if the rumors are true.
