    Analyst Says Smaller iPad is Inevitable, But Not Just Yet


    AppleInsider reports today that Sterne Agee analyst Shaw Wu has been weighing in on the current iPad mini rumour and counter-rumour debate, with Wu saying that as far as he is concerned, when it comes to the possibility of Apple releasing a smaller version of the iPad, it’s simply a matter of when, not if. Wu has been hearing rumours of a smaller iPad since as far back as 2009, before even the first iPad was launched, when he said Apple was looking into screen sizes as small as 4 inches and as big as 12 inches. Wu says that it would make sound business sense for Apple to release a smaller version of the iPad in order to head off competition from Amazon’s Kindle Fire, Google’s unnamed 7-inch tablet, as well as the forthcoming Windows 8 tablets. According to AppleInsider, Wu thinks that when Apple does release a smaller version of the iPad, that will then become the entry-level model, taking over from the iPad 2, which has just had its price lowered to $399. Despite all that, unlike some of the other sources that have been pontificating recently about the possibility of a 7.85-inch iPad, Wu does not think that the release of a smaller iPad is imminent, saying “exact timing is difficult to predict.”
