7-Inch iPad To Launch By Christmas 2010?

by on August 17th, 2010

Here is some more 7-inch iPad goodies to add to the rumor mill.

This week, reports claim that a 7-inch iPad will be launched by Christmas 2010. The report comes from an Economic Daily News story which has been translated by IDG News.

The Economic Daily reports that Taiwanese companies have won a number of component contracts for the iPad 2. Chimei Innolux will supply 7-inch LCD screens, which use the same IPS (in-plane switching) technology found in the original iPad, which improves viewing angles and color on LCD screens. Touchscreen technology for the screens will come from Cando Corporation, the report says.

The iPad rumor mill has been full of 7-inch iPad reports lately, which have ranged from sparse stories to full digital mock-ups of what a 7-inch iPad would look like.

The current iPad, featuring a 9.7-inch display, has been a huge success for Apple. With the iPhone featuring a 3.5-inch display and the current iPad at 9.7-inches, is there really a need for a 7-inch iPad?

What do you think?

    A smaller iPad! Isn't called an iTouch?

  • Asiak

    If anything I want a 12″ version!

  • MT

    The current 10″ is just fine, but it would be cool to have more options.

  • 8TrackMind

    I don't really see the need for a 7″ iPad, That really is taking it more towards being a glorified iPod Touch.

    What I'd like is to see A new 9.7″ version, with a front facing camera and FaceTime integration, to help further this standard for video calls. I'd also like to see a faster processor, a new retina screen, and the speaker split left and right so we get real stereo sound out of it.

    Invent a case for the ipad, with a Pen on a rope, fold out kick stand, comes with a Promo code for some Apple Tablet software. Call it The Apple iSketch or something for Drafting artists, Costume designers, character art.
    or Do what Nintendo did. iPod XL lol

  • Wuju

    I agree

  • Shadow

    I can agree with the speaker comment but really… Do we need a front facing camera…
    Maybe I just “don't get it” but Facetime doesn't really impress me all that much…

    How about a open source ios that's not restricted and flash sorry Steve jobs it's 2010 not 1984. and 2gb ram and possibility of a keyboard?

    hmm, really? launch the 7-inch iPad by Christmas!
    Well, I think the 9.7 inch screen must be more popular for enjoying movies and videos, u know one of the top features of iPad is movie watching. At least now Im sucked in enjoying kinds of videos and movies with iPad, though some times need in the help of iPad video converter from iFunia for lack of flash support.

    But on the contrast, the 7-inch also have market I bileve, as it will be lightter than the 9.7 inch one, it's really a little heavy to keep around.
