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.

More importantly, Jobs clearly doesn't think 3.5 inches is too small for the iPhone so what was he really saying?

Jobs was saying that for tablets, whatever size, to take off they need apps that include more UI and functionality than their smartphone counterparts and that trying to squeeze that into what was available as a 7" screen two years ago and/or just using the same apps as on smartphones wouldn't cut it.

Now, two years later, Apple already has a huge base of tablet apps and 7" screens are available with higher ppis so they can support the same resolutions as 10" screens were able to two years ago.
