"With the industry revving its engines for the third and fourth quarter, the iPad rumor mill has also begun to pick up with reports of a smaller 7-inch iPad," reports PC magazine. The screen-size of the current iPad is 9.7 inches.

According to the article, "One of the iPad’s chief criticisms is that it is not much more than a larger iPod touch, a criticism that has been dispelled by Apple’s most recent sales figures. A smaller iPad would most likely not dramatically improve the portability of the device, as it’s still larger than a pocket. But a 7-inch iPad would be on par with the Barnes & Noble Nook and slightly larger than the redesigned Amazon Kindle, which includes ts traditional 6-inch display but a smaller border."


  1. ….but would it be any cheaper?

  2. The thing I like best about my IPad is the screen size. Not sure of what advatage a smaller screen would be.

  3. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  4. wow you have put loads of effort into this post!Thanks

  5. Great stuff, though there are a few points I would query.
