Apple is prepping an 8-inch iPad, WSJ says

Apple is currently working with suppliers on a smaller version of the iPad, The Wall Street Journal reports. Citing unnamed sources from within Apple’s supply chain, the report claims that the Cupertino-based company is currently showing off designs for a new iPad that packs the same resolution as the iPad 2 into a display that measures around 8-inches diagonally. This new report is in line with earlier reports claiming Apple is planning a 7.85-inch iPad with the same display resolution as the iPad 2, though The Journal’s report indicates that Apple is not as far along in the build process as had been previously indicated. The Wall Street Journal also notes that Apple “works with suppliers to test new designs all the time” and could drop its plans to build the new iPad.
