Rumors of larger iPad gaining currency in Asia

The supply chain in Asia is getting increasingly chatty about a larger iPad. Is Apple getting ready to take the plunge?

 Rumors about a larger iPad are gaining steam. The latest claim is that Taipei-based Quanta is working with Apple to develop a large iPad. Quanta Computer, known primarily as a manufacturer of laptops, and Apple are eyeing what a Chinese-language udn.com calls a 12-inch class device. Earlier reports in May had cited a 12.9-inch tablet.

News from the Asia-based supply chain of manufacturers is notoriously inconsistent, as companies frequently change plans before a product actually enters high-volume commercial production. That said, it does appear that Apple is toying with the idea of a larger iPad-like device as demand for MacBooks shrinks and iPad sales soar. This contraction-expansion, respectively, is sometimes referred to as the post-PC era. Quanta would be a logical choice to make a laptop-sized product.
In the coming months, Apple is expected to announce a thinner, lighter 9.7-inch iPad that takes design cues from the Mini.
