Apple has plans to release a smaller, 7-inch version of the iPad this October for $200 to $250, reports Rene Ritchie of iMore.Ritchie has had a great record with Apple rumours so far, so this report seems pretty accurate to us.

There’s no word on the exact dimensions of the smaller iPad, but its display is widely rumoured to measure 7.85 inches. (That comes from John Gruber, who said a few weeks ago he knows Apple has a smaller iPad in the works.)

As we’ve seen with devices like the Kindle Fire, people go nuts over cheaper tablets. A smaller iPad at $200 could easily crush the competition.
