According to a few people who claim to be familiar with Apple's iPad Mini plans, Apple will be using screens from AU Optronics and LG. The screen will measure 7.85 inches diagonally, compared to the current iPad's 9.7-inch screen. TPK Holding and Yeh Cheng Technology will supply the lamination coating for the device. The iPad Mini is expected to be announced in October, after the anticipated September keynote in which Apple is expected to announce the next generation iPhone.
An iPad Mini could help Apple hold its significant share in the tablet market, last reported at 70%.
Apple declined to comment on any plans for an iPad Mini or any ongoing relationships with the suggested part manufacturers.
Apple sales have been decreasing ever since a U.S. court ruled that Samsung was guilty of patent infringement. New product announcements such as the next iPhone and a new iPad Mini will most likely boost sales to above average numbers.
