Apple plans to launch a 7.85-inch iPad, according to The New York Times. Citing people with knowledge of the project, the report claims that the device will sell for “significantly less” than the third-generation iPad’s current base price of $399, and will be announced later this year. Such a device has been repeatedly rumored over the past few months; last week, a photo of a purported case mold for the device was spotted online.

I have owned every version of the iPad, and the only reason I haven’t bought a Kindle Fire or a color Nook as a back up tablet or reader is that I would have to re-buy apps and have two separate non-compatible sets, one for the reader and the other for my iPad. Having a smaller, cheaper iPad solves that issue. I would order a 7.85 inch iPad as soon as it was available.
