Apple May Be Readying IPad With Smaller Screen, Analyst Says

Apple Inc. may be readying a version of its iPad tablet computer with a 7-inch screen to fend off a threat from competing smaller-sized devices, according to an analyst at Rodman & Renshaw LLC.

The product may be ready as soon as the first quarter of 2011, Rodman analyst Ashok Kumar wrote in a research report today. His analysis is based on conversations with Apple’s suppliers. The current iPad has a 9.7-inch screen.
