San Francisco, CA (RPRN) 09/30/10 — The newest tablets out there -- Samsung Galaxy Tab, RIM BlackBerry PlayBook -- seem to be converging on 7-inch screen size. And it's been rumored that Apple will also have a 7-inch iPad at some point.
The newest tablets out there -- Samsung Galaxy Tab, RIM BlackBerry PlayBook -- seem to be converging on 7-inch screen size. And it's been rumored that Apple will also have a 7-inch iPad at some point.
This is not a bad idea. The iPad's 10-inch screen makes it very useful, and clearly sets it apart from smartphones and laptops, which was Apple's big goal for the debut iPad. But many would likely appreciate an iPad that is lighter, more portable, and can be held more easily in one hand. Something Kindle-sized is certainly a possibility.
As Daring Fireball's John Gruber notes, the question then becomes, is the 7-inch iPad the only iPad? Or one member of an iPad family?
"Will Apple make a 7-inch iPad? And if so, would it be the new size for the iPad, or a second size, alongside the existing just-under-10-inch size? I don’t know. But I do know that Ashok Kumar has quite a track record regarding prognostications regarding the iPad and other Apple products."
