He said "These are among the reasons we think the current crop of 7-inch tablets are going to be DOA, dead on arrival."

The reasons are 6 in total, 3 related to the screen size, 3 aren't. It's about the "current crop", this was in October 2010. How well did those 7" tablets do? I can't even name any.

I can only conclude that he was right at that moment in time. Now Apple can put more pixels on the screen, meaning a smaller iPad can still display everything a normal iPad can. They couldn't do that in 2010, meaning a 7" iPad would have sucked.


@TM99 can you diluted mind (thank you for calling me "idiot") process this informations?

it is unbelievable how easy you mark someone as fanboy and dismiss his opinion and continue to live in RDF where Steve Jobs apparently said: "never would they produce a 7"...

this is something that all fandroids do: take out of context Steve words and make him look like idiot.


btw I did buy 7" Android tablet two yours ago... and use it for one month before I sold it.

Do you know the origin of the word "idiot"? It is from the Greek meaning to lack expertise or knowledge. I would say that perfectly describe you even though my post never once directly called you one.

Sorry, I am not a 'fandroid'. Never have been. Sorry, I have used Apple products since they began. I have also used Sun, Microsoft, HP, NeXT, etc. Sorry, I didn't take Jobs statements out of context.

Read this link: http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-57486733-37/heres-apples-e-mail-t...

It is quite representative of what the industry and media were led to believe by Jobs comments on the 7" tablets. Here is the relevant sentence: "Jobs was known to flip-flop on major ideas, and misdirect about potential business avenues, though his comments about smaller tablets suggested the company would never go that direction."

Look, enjoy your choice of computing platform. I would never want to deny you that choice. But, if you and others try to deny my choices, then I will call you out. And Apple's ridiculous patent 'victories' are going to continue to have a chilling effect on the future of choice in the computing industry.

It is always fascinating to watch the human mind go through defenses and projections in order to align its choices with the opposing reality of what is. That is delusion. ;)

this only prove that you are looking something/ANYTHING that will made Jobs was wrong.

it is so sad. you still do not understand what MOS6510 wrote to you: what jobs said two years ago and why.

--- keep searching ;)

I have also used Sun, Microsoft, HP, NeXT, etc. Sorry, I didn't take Jobs statements out of context.

and... so what? I used: Spectrum, C64, Atari XL, Atari ST, Amiga, Mac, and at the end: PieCe-of-shit called PC (Wintel)... and...??

But, if you and others try to deny my choices, then I will call you out.

??? ;) ...what is YOUR "choice" of platform? crapy Wintel that took something like 15 years to reach usability of other platforms? ;)
good choice! ;)

Facts are facts even if you think they aren't.

yes: facts are facts but yours interpretation is definitively under RDF! ;)
