Apple iPad Mini for Christmas? Rumours have started but is there a market

While the Apple iPad is sure to be a very popular gift this coming Christmas, the rumours have now started about Apple perhaps planning to bring different sizes of the Apple iPad for Christmas, including a 7 inch or a 5.6 inch Apple iPad Mini.

Digitimes are the ones that this time is reporting that Apple might be bringing out two more versions of the popular iPad featuring OLED screens in time for the very important Christmas season. We have to ask the question about how likely these rumours are though, as it is also rumoured that the iPod Touch 4 will come out around the same time.

Apple iPad Mini next?

Going back to when all the rumours about the Apple iPad started many believed that there would be 2 or 3 different sizes coming out, so there is nothing really new about these rumours. However there are several arguments against Apple bringing more sizes of the Apple iPad, at least as early as before this Christmas.

1) Smaller Apple iPads would seriously affect the iPod sale, and especially cannibalize the iPod Touch which is expected to get an upgrade, perhaps including Facetime and camera. Could we perhaps see Apple making the 4th generation iPod Touch slightly larger and renaming it as Apple iPad Mini?

2) Bringing OLED screens to the smaller Apple iPads might  not be possible as the demand for the popular OLED screens far outweight the supply in the market at the moment. Samsung who produces the OLED screens are using most of the stock on their own iPhone competitor, the Samsung Galaxy S series.

Should we see a smaller size Apple iPad before Christmas, our guess would be that it would replace the current iPod Touch, but not be much bigger than the current iPod Touch. If that is the case we are likely to see a 5.6 inch screen, hopefully in 16:9 format unlike the 4:3 aspect ratio of the current Apple iPad.

  2. I hate it when folks just copy and paste comments…A large amount of people just comment to get a backlink, however, I can’t blame them because backlinking is one of the fundamentals to getting a good pagerank and visitors. If however the comment is pertinent to the topic, then it’s actually a more effective backlink than the usual simple copy and paste and also the value of having loads of comments can be so big. Good post.
