2012 Rumors Continue: iPad to Release with 2 Models

Many think that the Apple’s iPad has no real competitors. Yes, Andriod tablets have exceeded the iPad in processing power but the iPad holds strong in overall design, quality, user-interface design and content-rich applications. Sense the Kindle Fire has released, some speculate that it may be starting to dig slightly into potential iPad sales.

The Kindle Fire is by no means a comparative to the iPad. Its much smaller in size, has much slower processing power and a tiny (very tiny) set of apps available for it. ..but at $199, it gives a slice of what the iPad is. Rumor has it that Apple may be working on as low-end version of the iPad to fill in the gap where those who can’t afford Apple’s standard tablet.

“Apple is set to unveil its next-generation iPad—which will come in two versions—at the [MacWorld/iWorld expo] scheduled for January 26, 2012,” read a Dec. 29 report, citing unnamed supply-chain sources. “The new models will join the existing iPad 2 to demonstrate Apple’s complete iPad series targeting the entry-level, mid-range and high-end market segments.”

If these rumors are true, Apple may finally unveil a smaller sized iPad or at least a stripped down iPad at a price point that won’t break the bank.
