- New devices expected to have a screen of less than eight inches
- Gadgets will not be launched together as that would lessen the impact of the launch
The new iPad ‘mini’ as it might look next to the new iPhone 5 and the current iPad 2
The iPhone is too big, too cool and garners too much attention – and it’s in Apple’s interest to keep that attention undiluted.
Only after the next generation iPhone is out the door and on sale will Apple announce the smaller iPad it’s been working on,’ said Paczkowski.
‘That device, which is expected to have a display of less than eight inches, will be uncrated at a second special event, which sources said is currently scheduled for October.’
Furthermore, the iPad Mini will look more like a scaled-up version of the iPod Touch than a scaled-down iPad, rumours circulating the internet suggest.
However the similarities with the iPod Touch and the slimmer side bezels mean that the iPad Mini could have the same dimensions as its rival but still boast a larger 4:3 display.
