Smaller, budget iPad due in 2011?

April 8, 2010 at 4:06 pm

Apple iPadDigitimes is reporting that Apple is planning to launch a new iPad in Q1 2011 that will sport a 5-7-inch display. It’s sources appear to be “upstream component” suppliers who suggest the price will be lower than $400. This is $100 cheaper than the current entry-level iPad.

It will differentiate itself from the larger model by concentrating its use as an e-reader rather that those that have “a high demand for text input”. Sounds interesting, although I’m not sure where this device fits into its portfolio, given that it doesn’t sound much bigger than an iPod Touch.

    Unfortunately the power adapter that I puasrhced was defective. I waited quite a few days for it to arrive and when it did, it was defective and did not charge the netbook, so I had to return it and wait another few days to receive a refund. I was told that it is the type of product that doesn’t allow for a simple exchange. So I had to go elsewhere to buy another power charger, since I didn’t want to run the risk of receiving another defective one. I am still waiting to receive it in the mail!!

Got something to say?
