New York: Apple is working with component suppliers in Asia to test a new version of its popular tablet computer with a smaller screen, U.S. media reported on Tuesday.

Citing people familiar with the situation, The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that Apple officials have shown some suppliers designs for a device with an 8-inch screen size. It was said that Apple is qualifying potential suppliers to manufacture the device.

In comparison, the iPad tablets Apple has launched so far feature 9.7-inch screens.

A smaller tablet would help Apple broaden its product offerings, therefore better compete with rivals such as Samsung Electronics and Amazon to maintain its dominant market share.

The news of Apple testing a smaller tablet comes as the company is reportedly preparing to unveil a new iPad in early March which is expected to have a similar screen size of around 9.7 inches with the current generation of iPad 2.
