The rumor mill continues to thrive with the Chinese-language Economic Daily News reporting that the new iPad 2 will go into production this month and will be on sale early next year per PC World.

The same newspaper in August reported that the device would have a 7″ touchscreen.

The August report from the Economic Daily said Chimei Innolux will supply 7-inch LCD touchscreens, which use the same IPS (in-plane switching) technology found in the original iPad, for the new device.

The companies named in the Economic Daily report declined to comment. Contract manufacturers and component makers normally do not reveal what products they’re working on because failure to maintain secrecy can cause them to lose business.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.

  1. It will also have a built in sander for your fingers.

    “It (seven-inch screen) is useless unless you include sandpaper so users can sand their fingers down to a quarter of their size.”

  2. BS rumor. I’d go with the boss’s comment. Mr. Jobs said no way to 7″. He was pretty clear about that. The only way Apple will do a 7″ is if the competition (if there will be such) succeeds with one like that. The focus of new iPads needs to be weight, not size. I can easily understand the camera, at least a front-facing, and a lighter carbon-fiber enclosure.

  3. 7 inch would be horrible!!!!!
