    So let me get this straight? Apple is going to release a 4.3" iPhone and a 6" iPad? Get real.

    Until you start releasing legitimate news, I'm done with this place.
    SOOOO many people talk about Steve Job's bashing something as if that means it will NEVER make it to an Apple product. It has before... MANY TIMES! Not to say it will this time, but your reasoning doesn't stand.

    Android Honeycomb is the tablet OS and it looks soo much nicer than iOS so I do know what I'm talking about
    FWIW there a replenty that would take a 7" tablet, even if the guy you are responding to was a bit harsh. Plenty of people are buying the nook color and installing custom froyo on it for that very reason. Smaller screen means lowering the costs and people like that. There certainly is a market for tablets that are actually under $500 base price...

    I will be laughing at everyone who says apple won't release this!!!.
    Plans and ideas change constantly.
    And I wouldn't doubt it if they did release something like this I would definitely pick one up if ever released...

    I like the Mini port but Don't care for the Size. 6inches for a tablet? I'd be better off getting Dell's DUO then, and using my Current iPad as a Secondary Display for my Laptop.

    IF this is real (what I doubt) I think it won't reach to much people because the iPad (1) is very expensive (in Europe almost €600) and a lot of people rather buy Android Tabled like Galaxy Tab for €400 and my opinion of the iPad is that it is a oversized iPod with 3g... BUT I can understand that other people like this but I don't think apple would ever change the plug-in of the iDevice not even if Steve thinks it is a good idea

    If their alleged plan is to make the iPad a bit smaller or the iPhone a bit bigger I'm fine with that, and would be interested in upgrading to either.

    If it turns out they're adding a device to sit between the two in size and price then I feel like that would just be too many versions of essentially very similar products.

    It's hard enough for most people to wrap their heads around needing both an iPad, let alone if you throw a maxipod into the mix.

    The three big tablets this year will be iPad 2, Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Motorola Xoom.
    100% agreed.
    No more talk on this subject. This guy narrowed it down for us.

    There certainly is a market for this. The pricing would be a factor though.

    i wouldn't mind a 7ish inch iPad...

    and them changing to a miniUSB is highly unlikely.
    it'd almost be pointless.

    honestly i'd probably buy a 7inch before a 10inch, i'd have to check it out at an apple store first probably.. to see which one i'd like more. i already know that they're putting in cameras which was one of the reasons i was holding off on buying one.
