7 inch iPad rumoured to launch in Q1 2011 with 128GB storage

Latest reports from Taipei suggest that Apple may very well launch the 7 inch iPad in Q1 2011. Elizabeth Woyke also reported similar findings for Forbes.

“In an Oct. 6 research note, Ticonderoga Securities analyst Brian White reports that Apple is developing a smaller version of its uber-popular iPad and suggests that sales numbers of the original iPad could reach 45 million in 2011” she said.

Further details verify that the new iPad will have the new high resolution Retina display that ships with the iPhone 4 and it will also have a USB port, either micro or mini. A camera will also be incorporated into the design and storage capacity will also be boosted up to 128GB.

45 million iPads to sell in 2011? Analysts think so.

The 9.7 inch iPad has been a huge seller for Apple but research has shown that a percentage of people questioned would prefer a smaller unit for portability. Rumours also persist that the 9.7 inch V2 will be released shortly afterward featuring a better quality screen, USB connectivity and cameras.

Leaked information also points to the fact that Apple could very well sell 45 million iPads in 2011, a very tall order considering the price point. 7 million more iPads are set to be sold before the end of 2010.

    This would suit a lot of people better. especially with the new screen and some options for usb connectivity. Apple missed out on a few key things with the first ipad, but I think its intentional, to sell follow up items with the proper hardware.

    One thing the launch of the iPad and the subsequent rush by competitors is that Apple will play the cards closer to the chest and probably even seed a few Red Herrings. It is interesting that the 7 inch model is thought to be more popular – Where are the sales figures to prove this? Oh that’s right not released into the wild yet

    However I would see a front facing camera for facetime going on their as well as a USB slot. Don’t need a SD card as the adapter Apple sells works perfectly to upload camera pictures stored on one. Frankly I do not see the need for a 12 megapixel camera in the iPad – who would use an iPad for taking pictures.

    This is probably where Apple differs from other manufacturers in that they put in what is needed not just because they can which seems to be what the other manufacturers are doing..

  • The first version of ipad is little bigger than I wanted, and 7-inch is good. I have supposed to watch video anywhere with ipad, but I’m feeling inconvenience, because of the big multi-touch screen and video limits, the next problem can be solved by video converter like ifunia, the first one is impossible. So, 7-inch ipad is a cute thing, isn’t it?
