According to various reports, Apple is planning to launch a mini iPad later this year, in time for the year end holiday season.
Rumours about the launch of a new smaller iPad have been circulating for quite some time and it seems that confirmation of the launch of the new device as well as details of its specs are coming in from various sources close to the project, with the most recent of which coming from website MyDrivers.com.
According to the Chinese language site, the new mini iPad will feature a 7.85 inch IGZO display made by Sharp, rather than the most recent iPad’s Retina display. The indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) technology is used to create a display that is thinner and higher in contrast.
The new tablet is expected to be priced at around $250 with a higher end device priced at $300 also to become available.
