Is Apple Working on 7.85-inch iPads?

Apple is currently testing 7.85-inch iPad displays from Taiwanese panel maker AU Optronics, according to The Economic Daily News. That is interesting because it would contradict earlier and emphatic statements from Apple that 10-inch screens were the "minimum" for a tablet device.

The Economic Daily News predicts that Apple will launch a 7.85-inch iPad early in 2012.

Former Apple CEO Steve Jobs said in 2010 that screens smaller than 10 inches were too small to support great tablet apps.
