Even though the third-generation iPad was announced less than a week ago, the iPad rumor mills haven’t slowed down a bit. The latest whispers come from the Korea Times, who have quoted an unnamed Samsung official as saying that Apple will be releasing a smaller iPad, possibly by the end of this year, using Samsung displays.
The choice of Samsung makes some sense, since we have learned that Samsung is currently the only supplier of iPad Retina displays (as well as other components, such as the new A5X processor), after other manufacturers failed to meet Apple’s quality standards.
However, we’re not entirely certain that this project is going to get the green light. Recent reports have said that such a mini iPad would have a diminished bezel more like a phone and less like a tablet.
