Ipad 3 in Testing phase, with March 7th as Likely launch date

8inch Ipad

Apple is reportedly testing a smaller, 8-inch version of its iPad. And the iPad 3 will be available with 4G LTE connectivity, according to reports from the Wall Street Journal.

 

If you thought we’d get through the pre-iPad 3 launch without the normal fury that builds before Apple releases a new product, you’re wrong.

Let’s take these one at a time. The first report, about the 8-inch iPad, should come as no surprise. It’s also fairly meaningless, at least for the moment. Apple tests new products all the time. Just because it does so doesn’t mean those products will find their way onto the shelf of your local Incredible Connection, soon or ever. That said, an 8-inch iPad is an excellent idea. The iPad and iPad 2 measure 9.7 inches, which is an nice screen size, but makes the device a bit cumbersome at times, especially if you’re using it for extended periods. An 8-inch tablet is, if you ask us, perfect.

Many market analysts think Apple needs to release a smaller, less expensive tablet that can compete with the likes of Samsung’s 7- and 8.9-inch Galaxy Tabs, and Amazon’s 7-inch Kindle Fire

However Apple’s iPad dominates the tablet market, with the company shifting more than 55 million units since its launch in April 2010
