It’s quite clear, Apple is going to launch 7-inch Tablet later this year. Everyday, we come across with lots of rumors related to iPad Mini. Recently, citing to a reliable source, WSJ said that the Tablet will more likely to have a smaller eight-inches screen. The firm also said that Apple instructed to its component suppliers (anonymous) for the mass production of smaller Tablet. For screen of the device, the company has tied up with LG and Taiwan-based AU Optronics.

Clearly, iPad mini is on the way to be launched later this year. Another firm “Unwired View” has also reportedly stated that the device is expected to have cost ranges between $249-$299. In addition to these, the new iPad will have IGZO (Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide) display panel, which is being manufactured by Sharp. Actually, IGZO is a thin-film transistor (TFT) helps to make device thinner along with increasing endurance and display quality. Anyway, the price tag sounds pleasure; after all, the cost of the device is expected to be lower than the 10-inches iPads.

However, the market share of the OS raised in April of this year to 63.19%. Likewise, Android had just 19.73% global mobile OS market share in the last month, up from 18.12% in January of this year. On the contrary, the market share of BlackBerry and Symbian declined to 1.87% and 1.49% in the last month from 2.59% and 5.20% in January of this year respectively.
