Apple orders 10in iPad, moles claim implausibly

Rounding error?

Application security programs and practises

Taiwanese contract manufacturer Pegatron, which already makes iPhones and iPads, has landed orders for the iPhone 5 and a ten-inch iPad, it has been claimed.

The handset is said to be cued to ship in September, the tablet in Q4, "Taiwan-based supply chain makers" tell Digitimes.

Getting Pegatron to produce iPhone 5s seems likely. As we say, it's already punching out the current model.

But a ten-inch iPad? That's no doubt a reference to the current model, which has a 9.7in screen, but with the final digit rounded up. Apple may be preparing yet another incarnation - actually, there's no doubt about it - but we can't see it shipping in Q4 2012.

Cast your mind back a year ago, and you'll recall all the many rumours forecasting the debut of the iPad 3 in Q4 2011. It didn't happen, and we can't see it happening this year, the arrival of a 7.85in 'iPad Mini' or no. ®
