Hot on the heels of Google’s announcement of the seven-inch Nexus-7 tablet, rumours abound that a 7.85 inch iPad is on the way. Since Apple never misses a chance for domination of the mobile market, this makes a certain amount of sense.

One of the chief complaints about the iPad is that it is pricey for the average consumer in the current economic situation. Another complaint is that the full 10-inch iPad is too large to fit into the average ladies purse and makers of the smaller form-factor tablets have seen some gains amongst female consumers. After all, they’re 50% of the potential tablet market.

The common starting price so far with Amazon’s Kindle Fire,  Barnes and Noble’s Nook and the Google’s Nexus-7 is $199.00 though the first two seem to be playing chicken with their pricing. If the scuttlebutt is correct, Apple’s smaller iPad will start at – surprise, surprise – $199.

Since this is all speculation at the moment, it seems outwith the scope of this blog to dig deeper sans hard evidence. Nonetheless, you are welcome to read this report in CNN’s Tech section and decide for yourself.
