According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple is looking at maintaining its dominance in the tablet market with the possible launch of a reduced-size tablet computer, smaller than its current iPad.

The news comes from the firm’s Asian component suppliers who are reportedly preparing for mass production in September of a tablet computer with a screen likely to be smaller than eight inches, compared to the 9.7 inches of today’s iPad. The Wall Street Journal reported in February that Apple was testing such a device but hadn't yet decided whether to proceed with production.
