Remember when Steve Jobs rubbished the idea of a smaller-sized iPad because the screen was “too small to express the software”? Well, it seems Apple is experimenting with a smaller sized tablet, according to a new report by Wall Street Journal. The report suggests that Apple is working with component suppliers to test a smaller-sized tablet where Apple even gave a sneak peek to suppliers of the screen designs. Apparently, this iPad has screen size of about 8-inches along with a display resolution similar to the current iPad 2.
WSJ is quick to point out that since Apple is experimenting, the launch of smaller-sized iPad may or may not see the day. However, if it were to happen, Apple’s entry in the smaller-size tablet market could shake things up where devices like Kindle Fire, Galaxy Tab are selling like hot cakes.
