Rumours of a 7-inch iPad have been floating around even before the release of the original iPad. However, recently a Taiwanese components supplier is suggesting the possible specifications of the next generation.
According to a Wall Street analyst whom the suppliers spoke to, the new 7-inch iPad (2 times the display size of the iPhone 4) will exhibit a high resolution retina display (1280p) with a camera as well as 128GB of storage. Not only does the new iPad come with the standard jack but it’s speculated to also support a mini-usb or micro-usb port.
As for the new size, it does not seem likely that Apple will discontinue the current size after a full year of development specifically for the 9.7 inch form factor. With that being said, the rumoured 7-inch iPad may be an addition to the current lineup.
What is quite intriguing is the improbability of a 9.7 inch iPad sporting a retina display screen while the rumoured 7 inch will support this high resolution display. Should this be the case, what would pricing be like? Which would be considered the higher end model?
