DigiTimes today continued their flood of iPad rumors with report that AU Optronics (AUO) has received orders for 7.85-inch LCD panels that Apple will use in their 7.85-inch iPad model later this year. DigiTimes report was based on an article published by Chinese language newspaper. Steve Shen wrote on DigiTimes:
We should take Apple rumors posted by DigiTimes with a big mountain of salt, but rumors about a 7.85-inch iPad model are gaining steam. Even Samsung’s own investment bank believes that Apple is planning to release a 7-inch iPad mini in Q3 2012. Josh Ong wrote on AppleInsider:
Our sources also say that Apple is working on a cheaper iPad model, but they have no information about specification of that model. Whether it be based on same 9.7-inch screen as iPad 2 or on a smaller 7.85-inch screen, or what kind of processor and storage it will have. However, one thing is now looking certain Apple will have more than one iPad model on sale this year.
