They have received this information from a Samsung executive who claimed that Samsung will supply PLS-based LCD screen for the smaller iPad.

Recently John Gruber of Daring Fireball has claimed that a 7.85-inch iPad exists in the research lab of Apple. Ciccarese Design has also created some concept pictures of smaller 7.85-inch iPad.
