Apple to launch 7.85 inch mini Apple iPad in Q3 of 2012?
Despite the overwhelming success of the 9.7 inch Apple iPad, the smaller 7 inch Amazon Kindle Fire has been outselling the Apple tablet during the holiday season and Apple might want to provide a more well rounded tablet lineup for buyers. The late Steve Jobs was known to have been against the production of a 7 inch tablet.
Talk about a 7.85 inch Apple tablet is just speculation at the moment, as it would force Apple to cut corners in order to compete with a low priced device like the Amazon Kindle Fire. Apple might have to cut the amount of storage or put a slower processor under the hood.
