    An 8" iPad in the Works?


    pbrauer from over at AndroidTablets.net brought us this little gem of a story. It may be primarily Apple news, but it makes for some interesting speculation about Android products too, and is worth paying attention too. Here is his piece below:

    So, if Apple were to come too late to the table with an 8" iPad would Samsung paper-bomb them with restraining orders? The question may not be as odd as it seems. Rumors out of Taipei are talking about new test versions of the iPad circulating with an 8" form factor, significantly different from the standard 9.7" screen we have become used to.

    Rumors from the region state that Apple is working with screen makers including Taiwan-based AU Optronics and LG Display and of South Korea to supply the test panels. If these devices make it to the market they would significantly increase the portfolio for Apple, falling in between the iPhone and iPad forms.
    As a standard practice it is not uncommon for Apple to try a couple of different configurations out, and this would place the iPad directly in competition with the devices from Samsung and Amazon. No real details other than size are available, but it is definitely something to keep our eyes on!

    Will watch with interest, especially if lawsuits emerge.
