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.

...the Nexus 7...

I've mentioned I'm a Mac fan from way back (1980), but couldn't resist the lure of the Nexus... I couldn't see Apple bringing out a 7" quad anytime soon, plus because Google is in control of this one, updates should be frequent.

Lets see if Android 4.1 can match my love for all things iOS :-)

We're on the same boat. Long time Apple fan, but I couldn't resist the price of the Nexus 7. It's everything I wanted the iPad to be: less than 10 inches, NOT 1024x768 (hello 1990?), and less than $300.

Thank you Google. My money is on the 16GB model. It also helped to trade in a truckload of Wii stuff at Gamestop. Got a hefty trade-in credit +30% towards the Nexus 7.
