Apple is reportedly testing an 8 inch iPad in its labs, but will it be released in addition to the IPad3? Apple officials have said that the 8 inch IPad would feature a similar resolution to the Ipad2. However other reports differ with rumors that apple would double the pixel density of the IPad 2 and the IPad 3. So what would the new product be an Ipad4 or a mini I pad?
