HP already has drawn up grand plans with its 9.7 inch TouchPad device though that isn’t the only tablet that the company has lined up for a future release. For there are already reports of Inventec, a Taiwan based hardware manufacturer having received a huge order for supplying 7 inch sized tablets. The size of the order amounts to 400,000 to 450,000 units to be shipped every month with industry experts predicting its August that the smaller cousin of the TouchPad to go live. Inventec is already the single largest supplier of notebook PCs to HP.
However, there are currently no other information available of the 7 inch tablet though it will perhaps be safe to assume the 7 inchers to be basically a scaled down version (size wise) of the TouchPads. In any case, a smaller TouchPad should be a boon to those who prefer the practicality of a tablet PC but would like to have it in smaller sized package.
