IDG News has translated a Economic Daily News report that is claiming that we should expect a 7" iPad by Christmas of this year.


blockquote>"The Economic Daily reports that Taiwanese companies have won a number of component contracts for the iPad 2. Chimei Innolux will supply 7-inch LCD screens, which use the same IPS (in-plane switching) technology found in the original iPad, which improves viewing angles and color on LCD screens. Touchscreen technology for the screens will come from Cando Corporation, the report says."

This is not the first we've heard of a 7" iPad as earlier this month iLounge was reporting that a 7" screened version is substantially finished and will be ready for a announcement either later this year or early in 2011.

So are any of our readers ready to lay down their hard-earned cash on a 7" iPad this holiday season?
