Apple plans to pare down iPad
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Apple is reportedly downsizing its popular iPad.
The Wall Street Journal says suppliers in Asia have been told to gear up for mass production of mini iPads.
It says Apple is likely to move towards a seven inch screen to match the competition from Google's Nexus tablet and Amazon's Kindle Fire.
The smaller tablets retail at $199, less than half the price of the cheapest iPad.
But it won't have the high-definition screen that's on the latest iPad.
So far there's been no comment from Apple.
