DigiTimes has started a buzz with this piece that claims Apple will introduce two new versions of the iPad in January to complement its current tablet. The move will give Apple a lineup of iPads at various price points, DigiTimes said, including a low-end device to compete with Amazon’s Kindle Fire. But my colleague Darrell Etherington takes a skeptical view of that claim here, questioning among other things whether Apple would really focus solely on the camera when differentiating its high-end tablet. Darrell and I agree that Apple would be wise to roll out a low-cost tablet, and indeed the company could be moving that direction. But neither of us is expecting a three-iPad lineup anytime soon.
