Rumors Of iPad Mini & iPhone 5 With Larger Display Get Stronger

by on November 15th, 2011

A recent report published by IDG news service claims that Apple is in talks with LG Electronics regarding production of 7.35-inch displays for a smaller iPad, dubbed as ‘iPad Mini’ as well as 4-inch displays for the iPhone 5. A meeting between the two companies is said to be scheduled for later this week with one of the main agendas being Apple’s plans to introduce a smaller tablet. Both will reportedly discuss displays for the next-generations of iOS devices as well. However, both LG and Apple have declined to comment on the report.

Citing from the source:

An “industry insider” who spoke to the Korea Times made reference to an “iPad mini” and the iPhone 5 after approaching the newspaper with details of a new deal between Apple and LG Display concerning displays for future iOS devices.

“Next year’s iPhone to feature a 4-inch display by LG Display, half an inch larger than the 3.5-inch display and retina display resolution will remain unchanged because LCD is currently being regarded as the right solution to offer value with better cost-cuts,” the unnamed executive reportedly told the Korea Times.

The iPad mini rumors have been around quite a while now but we haven’t seen any ‘leaked parts’ from the supply chain so far. By the way, do we really need an iPad Mini?

    Yes, we do need an iPad mini. Specifically I need an iPad mini.

    This is exactly what I need… I need a bigger iPhone and a smaller iPad.

    Ideally I’d like to see a 5 inch iPhone, so that I can more comfortable browse, read ebooks and watch movies.

    As for my iPad, I’d love to see it small enough to fit in my pocket.  I’d say approx 6 inch would be perfect.  That way I could use it better as a camera and maybe even double as a phone using skype.

    So there you have it, keep making that iPhone bigger and let’s work on getting that iPad smaller.  Maybe they could even just call them the same thing so that I’m not having to explain it to my friends.  iPhad has a nice ring to it.  It could be iPhad and iPhad mini.  Perfect!

    It would be nice but I don’t need an iPad mini, the current size is just fine for me.  Then again, we women have purses to put our iPads in :) and don’t have to worry about putting it into our pockets.

    When you have a 5″ iPhone, why do you need a 6″ iPad?

    I guess it really comes down to how you use it then how big it is ;)

    Be careful Apple.  The last time that Steve was gone, you created way too much product diversification and it killed the company.  This time Steve is not coming back, so watch it.  Do something more revolutionary – time for a new approach to desktop and portable computing.  Unless, the larger iPad will replace your MacBook lines and the coomplete computer moves into tablet form.  That would be cool.  The MacPad for portable computing.  Now, how about a desktop change…?  27 inch iMac Tablet anyone?
