In yet another analyst report, this time Barclays says a new 7-inch iPad is on its way later this year.
According to the report, research leads them to believe that Apple may be planning to release a smaller iPad later this fall.
We believe that this type of product could be useful in promoting Apple’s agenda in education with e-textbooks. Also, the form factor could make sense in gaming, which could become a bigger platform for Apple over time.
Overall it seems the “report” is not much more than an accumulation of recent rumors as the 7-inch iPad has been seen in recent rumors as the “iPad Mini”.
However I do like these analyst reports for two reasons. First, there is rarely any real research put into them and it’s mostly just collected rumors. Second, they are usually wrong.
We’ll see later this year!
