@ Jaden

Your are right, the lower price would have reception of the people that couldn't afford the high price ones and want to use iPad.  They shouldn't expect much features though it still an iPad from Apple, then they belong to the class of iPad user.

Sure, the lower price iPad will have less features.  The are the price, the better the features.

Device with cheaper price usually come with low configurations like memory size, processor speed, storage size, etc.  For instance, there are laptop computers that are below $500 and some are far above this price, it all depend on the features. If I don't mind the storage capacity, the screen size, and the other features attached, I can buy a lower cost iPad.

@JADEN, I agree with you, I know a lot of people that are ready to buy IPAD1 if the price would fall

Well, I heard and read it one time that when some devices start to come out in a lower price compared to when it first came out, there is a kind of reduction in the features in the cheaper versions

Cheaper iPad would likely find a receptive marketing if Apple finally release it, and this will further Apple tablet's dominance.

@electronyx: I would think the less expensive version would have less storage as well. But there are a lot efficiencies that can be gained in screen production--smaller screen mean bigger yield per glass panel. Since the display is the biggest component of the iPad--at the biggest cost--the savings are considerable.

The cheaper would be definitely a very good option since this is just an leisure device for the entertainment. How much does the price will be reduce with the screen size reduction. Will there be any other feature reduction?

I start thinking about the apps on appstore. How would Apple maintain compatability in terms of display ? Currently there are apps designed for iPhone screen and iPad screens (HD),
