(Newser) – Cue the agonizing groans at Microsoft: Apple is planning a new entry-level iPad for later this year designed to fend off the coming barrage of Windows 8 tablets, reports Fox Business. According to a Chinese-language news site, some 6 million "iPad minis" will come out in the third quarter at a rumored price of $249 to $299. With Apple rivals already trying to cut prices, some analysts say, their tablets may never recover in the marketplace.

False rumor.

Take this story with a grain of salt. Rumors of new Apple products come out all the time that never see the light of day. Of course Apple will never acknowledge a false story. The stories help Apple whether they are true or not.
