The "7 Inch iPad Rumors"

The rumor mill keeps on heating up about the possibilities (or depending on who you read, certainty) that Apple will release a 7” iPad (or iPad Junior as @danbenjamin wants it to be called), and I wanted to throw a couple of quick links out to people interested in this.

First of all, John Gruber weighed in at Daring Fireball, working through what is it, why Apple would or wouldn’t do it, the fact that Steve Jobs famously said that Apple would never make a 7” tablet, cost factors, etc. A well thought out piece.

If you want a comparison of what it would look like (hint, it’s not a 7” tablet) you can check out Trojankitten’s mockup comparision of tablet sizes. Fairly illuminating as to how when people talk about the ‘7 inch iPad’ you shouldn’t picture an Kindle Fire or Nexus 7 with an Apple logo slapped on.
