iPad Rumors: NFC, Carbon Fiber, And 7" Version Again

I know what you’re thinking: none of these rumors is actually new. Near-field communication we’ve talked about for a while, the carbon fiber thing was around back in November, and didn’t we pretty much dismiss the 7″ iPad thing? Yes, all these things are true. But now somebody is rumoring them again.

Yes, a “previously accurate source” has informed iLounge that all of the above rumors have more traction than previously thought. I can see the carbon fiber thing happening, and NFC is pretty much a given, but as much as I’d like the 7″ iPad thing to be true, I just can’t picture Jobs sassing the whole idea of “tweeners” and then coming out with one.

We hear the new iPad may be debuting as early as next week, though, so I don’t think we’ll be in suspense for too long.
