I’m hesitant to post this since the spy shot above was submitted by an anonymous tipster, but it’s too exciting a rumor to pass up. Supposedly the team at Apple responsible for the new iPad has also been working on a compact version of their new tablet that’s not only pocket-friendly, but also adds a digital camera and phone capabilities! It will supposedly work with all of the existing software available in the iTunes App Store, and while it looks like it will lose the ability to add your own wallpaper, our tipster claims it’s pretty much capable of doing everything the new iPad can, and maybe even more!
Now on one hand it’s kind of crazy for Apple to release a new product that’s essentially the exact same thing as one of their existing products, only smaller, but imagine being able to surf the web, check email, watch videos, read ebooks and even play games on a device that’s just a fraction of the size of the iPad! Not surprisingly our tipster had no idea when Apple was planning to release the new device, but since it would probably cut into the iPad’s sales (who wants to carry around a 10-inch device when they can carry this thing?) I can’t see it being revealed anytime soon. But we’ll keep you posted if and when more information becomes available.
