The firm also said that Apple instructed to its component suppliers (anonymous) for the mass production of smaller Tablet.

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. It’s pretty clear from the above graph, both Android and iOS are growing at the cost of Symbian and BlackBerry.

At present, a sequence of Tablet has been launched or going to be launched later this year by Google, Samsung, Amazon and Microsoft. Recently, Microsoft has launched its Surface Tablets (for Windows RT and Windows 8 Pro) targeting to businesses and professionals. Last month, Google also launched its 7-inches Nexus Tablet, which is considered as the best Tablet among 7-inches Tablet categories, starting for $199. Indeed, Google Nexus Tablet has intensified the competition in the market and Amazon is currently endeavoring to make its Kindle Fire 2 Tablet more competitive than other players.
