There has long since been rumors that Apple would be rolling out a smaller version of the iPad (8.75 inches) very early in the new year. Today DigiTimes backtracks from its previous rumor with a new one – instead of the 7.85-inch iPad, Apple will supposedly be bringing two new retina-style iPads to the market to fill in the mid- and high-end market segments, while the current iPad 2 hangs around to take on the Kindle Fire. While the screen will stay the same in terms of size, suspected specs include QXGA resolution (1536×2048) and dual-LED light bars. And if said sources are to be believed, Sharp is now taking the lead on panel supply, with a little help from LG Display and Samsung Electronics. If all the information holds true, these new products are reported to be available January 26, 2012 at the iWorld conference.
