NYT: Apple to launch 7.85-inch iPad this year

Updated

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.
