Apple (AAPL) has a 7.85-inch iPad prototype in its labs, says die-hard Apple fan and blogger John Gruber in a recent podcast. The device is said to feature the same resolution as the iPad 1 and 2, rather than a retina display similar to the one in the new iPad. Plenty of rumors (I, II) have already surfaced about a 7.85-inch iPad being introduced to challenge the Kindle Fire's (AMZN) low-end leadership.
