Wall Street Journal reports are something worth listening to always sincere there isn’t a lot of publications out there that have a solid relation with the industrialist and the analyst in them. So it’s common the buddies share some news and talks in the town at the hangouts and the people here when happens to have a close relation with the suppliers inside and outside the country, the talks they share becomes the news of tomorrow. So when they say apple is building a new 8 inch iPad, the Apple probably is having its hands on one.
Recent reports from the WS journal say that Apple is working on an iPad with its 8 inch screen display. Earlier it was reported that the next iPad from Apple will be spotted with its 9 inch screen, the iPad 2. So the news about the 8 inch iPad is kind of surprising to the world. The new device is said to have the test run with the panels of LG and AU Optronics.
This obviously doesn’t mean that there won’t be a 9.7 inch iPad2. The final result of the test being conducted can be anything which would lead to the evolvement of iPad2. But the most important point to be taken from this is that, Apple is planning for a screen size that ranges near the 3.5inch for the iPhone. A 9.7" iPad 2 would be bad after all with the devices having bigger displays than others are doing well in the market. Galaxy Note with its 5.3 inches can be viewed as an example, the device being considered one of the biggest appreciated Samsung products.
By introducing such a smaller tablet it would be a best move that Apple would be making, adding up a variety to its assembly line. The points get its attention, when the word is out that the screen resolution will be similar to the iPad2. This makes the applications compatible and also the device will be lighter and more compact. This would eventually influence in the price too with a less amount to be paid in terms of boat load. This would be a great advantage for the device from the others.
It’s also heard that Apple is modifying the device with some extra utilities like a dock able keyboard and similar attachables.
Reviewers and critics believe that the device would have its head start in the market and the strategy is widely appreciated. This is expected to help the device take over many coming markets that includes China.
