Is it true? Is it not true? Rumors are flying about a potential smaller iPad, or “iPad mini” to be released by Apple and so far, Apple and its suppliers aren’t commenting. What’s unusual this time is that this smaller iPad model is an idea company founder Steve Jobs derided publicly a year before he died, according to USA Today.
“The reason we wouldn’t make a 7-inch tablet isn’t because we don’t want to hit a price point, it’s because we don’t think you can make a great tablet with a 7-inch screen,” Jobs said. “The 7-inch tablets are tweeners, too big to compete with a smartphone and too small to compete with an iPad.”
But, if the rumors are true and the little birds aren’t lying, the iPad mini would make for a screen about half the size of the current iPad, which has a diagonal measurement of 9.7 inches.
Sounds like a pretty neat and purse friendly idea, if you ask me.
