Rumors of a 7 inchhave started up again thanks to Technology Business Research analyst Ezra Gottheil. While speaking with Computerworld, she said that Apple may be preparing to launch two new products following the imminent release of the iPad 3. One is a case accessory that includes an integrated wireless keyboard, and the second is a 7 inch iPad.
“I believe that’s always been in the plan” Gottheil said. “Actually that’s a good form factor for some users, and although they will also charge a premium above other similar-sized tablets, they want to protect that price flank.”
This rumors keeps coming up even though Steve Jobs openly opposed the idea of a 7-inch tablet. The iPad 3 release is rumored for the beginning of March so we won’t have long to wait to find out if one of the many Apple rumors floating around is true.
