RUMOR: Apple’s 7-inch iPad is a finished product

“We’ve got ears to the ground in Shenzhen and here’s the story we’re hearing about Apple’s forthcoming new tablets, which apparently along with booze and women is an interesting talking point in the social scene in Shenzhen,” Tai-Pan reports for Shanzai. “Thanks in large part to the huge role Foxconn plays in Shenzhen’s scene.”

“Yes, there will be a 7-inch tablet, yes it’s well underway in terms of product development and in fact it’s a finished product,” Tai-Pan reports.

Tai-Pan reports, “Yes, 5+ different designs have been floating around to help Apple protect itself from people discovering its next product look and feel but… the final design will in fact bear more resemblance to the iPhone 4 stylings than the original iPad design.”

  1. I highly doubt a second form-factor now. Maybe with the second generation iPad (a la iPod). I really can’t see iPhone4 styling with a glass back and steel-band surround. That’s so wrong for anything bigger than a, well…, iPhone.

  3. This sound like an iDell killer or a BlackPad killer. Apple is like a technology plague. Companies that are trying to push their old school turds or push something like an Apple OS or device are being wiped out.

    Dell and the others, close the doors while you still have doors or get into another market.
