Apple Both The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg, the usual means through which Apple itself spreads rumours, have reported that a 7" iPad will be launched coming October. It's pretty obvious why Apple would leak this information now - to hinder the launch of the Nexus 7. According to Gruber, it would sport a 7.85" 1024x768 display - quite a step down from the 1280x800 7" display on the Nexus. Still, this is about the operating system, not specifications, so it doesn't matter all that much. I wonder what Jobs would think of this 7" tablet. Oh wait.

Unbelievable. If this isn't proof that hardware manufacturers are clueless I don't know what is.

I've worked at Best Buy for 8 years now and it's common knowledge that smaller screen = worse user experience. A 7 inch iPad would never sell.

Would a 7 inch iPhone? Hell yes. Give me one of those please.

But no one in their right mind is going to buy a 7 inch iPad. I would feel ashamed even suggesting it.


The iPad is just a big iPod Touch (nobody mentions this anymore).

What's the difference between a 7-inch iPad and a 7-inch iPhone (app-wise). They are the same thing minus phone calling.
