The iPad isn’t even a full week out of the gate and already a DigiTimes analyst is hearing from “upstream component sources” that Apple may be planning a 5- to 7-inch iPad for the first quarter of next year.

Apparently it “will be priced below US$400 and will target the highly-portable mobile device market and consumers that focus mainly on reading and do not have a high demand for text input.”

If true, it’ll be interesting to see what resolution the display will be. It may very well sit in between the iPhone and iPod Touch display at 480×320, and the iPad’s at 1024×768. Of course, this is all speculation until officially confirmed and the first quarter of next year is eons from now as far as gadgets go.
