Agreements with suppliers revealed the thing.
The new iPad could be the Apple's answer to Kindle Fire and other cheaper tablets.
Wall Street Journal reported today that some Asian suppliers are working with Apple to produce a new smaller iPad (The so called and rumored iPad mini). This could be the Apple response to customers who demand a lower priced and smaller tablet and to compete with all the medium range tablets out there like the Kindle Fire.
But don't get too excited, this doesn't mean that Apple will release such an iPad. The company is known for dropping projects that they considered not acceptable for production. Only time will say.
