The Hypothetical Folding iPad

Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst that gets most of his insight from the Apple supply chain is predicting Apple will ship a folding iPad next year (as reported at 9to5 Mac). We’ve been hearing about folding iPhones and iPads for years but this is the first time someone as notable as Ming-Chi Kuo has planted a flag.

I generally like the idea of Apple getting more experimental with hardware. It’d be pretty cool if you could carry something about the footprint of an iPad mini (but thicker) which unfolds into something much bigger. The trick would be in that transition on the screen and the hinge. If true, I expect Apple would have some interesting ideas.
