    image7.85-Inch iPad Mockup - Will You Buy One?

    Ever since Apple launched the iPad in 2010, there have been rumors that Apple will launch a smaller and cheaper version of their tablet - unofficially dubbed iPad mini.

    Steve Jobs had famously taken a dig at Apple's competitors for launching tablets that sport a 7-inch screen. Steve Jobs had this to say at a conference call last year about upcoming tablets from competitors.

      Not for me personally as i dont see a need to upgrade from my ipad 2 for quite some time as it meets all my needs. But if the "mini" ipad is scaled down in the same ratio screen perhaps with a higher pixel density to match the ipad 2 or 3's resolution so theres no need for apps to be designed for 2 different sizes or ratios. I think most of Steves reservations about a smaller tablet would be solved and I'm sure he was smart enough to have known that, but figured many android tablets need to be called out for being generally in my experience a 16:9 or 10 ratio generic, relatively low resolution screen and they really are rubbish to use compared to an ipad esp in portrait mode because of appreciably less horizontal real estate/pixels and it feeling odd to read/use comfortably etc

      I will buy two, one for me the other for my daughter. I will give my grandson my iPad1. I also have the kindle Fire and I love it for its size. But the Apple quality does not come with the Kindle so hurry up and make the 7.8 inch pad.

      Wow. The release of a 7 inch tablet would make Apple hypocrites, would it, consider they bashed all other maker of 7 inch tablets as too small? But I sure no one will remember that and they'll go buy it in droves.

      I would definitely get the smaller 8" iPad... Many folks want something a bit smaller to fit better in a briefcase or ladies purse... It's a good reaction by Apple to react to competition... Recall Apple has three screen sizes for the MacBooks, why not multiple sizes for iPads, makes lots sense to me... And it's easy to do.. Look at the insides of the iPad 2... Lots of internal room for trimming the case and screen size with little or no modification to the electronics or the battery... Looks to me like there is almost 1" of empty space all around the internals, like Apple was planned for this possibility many years ago in their design... Jw.
