There’s been scuttlebutt about Apple producing a smaller iteration of the iPad since before there was an iPad. Crazy right? Steve Jobs would never have let it happen while he was alive but Steve isn’t alive any more, is he? In light of the success of Amazon’s seven inch Kindle Fire, I feel there’s a pretty good chance that Apple might opt to crank out a smaller iPad with a less painful price point in order steal back some of the marketshare they’ve lost. If you head on over to Mac|Life, you’ll find my roundup of the history of the rumours surrounding the iPad mini. Will the damned thing ever see the light of day?
Time will tell.
