Apple’s New 7.85 inch Tablet “iPad Mini” Will Launch in Q4 2012! Report.
Apple’s new 7.85 inch Tablet “iPad Mini” is now making its way in tech news. A report just posted by DigiTimes claim that Apple is planning for launching its new 7.85 inch iPad in Q4 2012.
In order to cope with increasing market competition including the 7-inch Kindle Fire from Amazon and the launch of large-size smartphones from handset vendors, Apple has been persuaded into the development of 7.85-inch iPads, the sources indicated.
In addition to purchasing 7.85-inch panels from LG Display, Apple will also buy panels from AU Optronics (AUO), indicated the sources, adding that makers in the supply chain are likely to begin production of the 7.85-inch models at the end of the second quarter of 2012.
We have earlier read a few reports about a 7-inch iPad, but took them as only speculations. Back in October, United Daily News has also posted a report describing the release of a 7.85-inch iPad in 2012.
