  • Rumor: New iPad to Launch by Summer's End


    According to a Chinese publication by the name of Apple Daily, a new iPad is to presumably launch by the end of summer. Based on whatís being said, the new iPad wonít be the long-rumored 7-inch iPad that many have been waiting for. The new iPad is supposed to feature a thinner design, a better battery, and a better display as well. The screen here is rumored to feature indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) panel technology, which would be an improvement over the current display. Last but not least, Apple Daily reports that Apple will switch display manufacturers from Samsung to Sharp.

    With the current iPad being introduced just a few months ago and given the suggested time of release, the rumor seems to be a hoax. Although having predicted some credible information in the past, the Chinese publications tend to have a spotty record when it comes to rumors and speculation and this is no different. Itís very unlikely from Apple to stray from their rather consistent release schedule of products and realistically releasing an iPad a few months after a refresh seems like it would be a very stupid idea.

    If it was released, it would likely be released in September or October presumably alongside the next-generation iPhone. That being said, what do you think?

      Exactly my thoughts. Not that I don't appreciate the OP for posting news, this is obviously absurd.

      A 7 inch MAY, and I strongly emphasize the "MAY", come out LATER in the year, possibly around the time of the iPod refreshes. But definitely not this summer and definitely not another full sized one at all. That's a ridiculous notion to even entertain.
