Instapaper creator Marco Arment is reporting that he has discovered references to two new iPads in Instapaper's device stats: iPad2,5 and iPad2,6.

Rumors of a smaller iPad - which would slot into the mid-point between the existing, 9.7-inch model, and the 3.5-inch iPhone and iPod touch - have circulated for as long as the iPad has been on sale; however, the arrival of the new Nexus 7 running Jelly Bean is arguably the biggest motivator yet for Apple to make good on the heresay.
