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.

Steve was right, video didn't work on the iPod, it was only with the introduction of the iPod touch that video became workable on the mobile device.

Id be very surprised if apple releases a 7" iPad, it goes against the anti fragmentation and the consistent message of Steve/apple that there is no market for 7" iPad

Watching many of the all things d and other interviews when pushed regarding an apple phone in 2004/05 Steve listed reasons why it wouldn't work, namely the carriers, however with the 7" he was adamant that it just wouldnt work, apple also is a company that provides a very focused bunch of products as they have see cross product cannibalisation in other companies.
