    Default ipad mini

    John Gruber Claims Apple Is Currently Testing The Rumored 'iPad mini' -- AppAdvice

    What I do know is that they have one in the lab, a 7.85″ iPad that runs at 1024 x 768. And its just like the 9.7-inch iPad shrunk down a little bit. The apps wouldnt need to be redesigned or recompiled to work on it its just the iPad smaller.

    To clarify, he goes on to say that hes heard from numerous people that its one of the ideas that [Apple] is noodling with. But he has no idea when, or if, Apple plans on shipping it.


    I'd say this qualifies for its very own forum now moreso than iTV. I'd be willing to bet this will launch later this year.

    My opinion: meh. Let's wait and see IF anything legit comes within the next year or so... doubtful...

    Jeremy already said this wasn't happening, at least not this year. That is the reason I went ahead and purchased the iPad 3.

    Honestly, what would be the point in even purchasing a 7.85" iPad. 9.7" is good enough IMHO.

    There are people who would purchase it, but I'm not one of them. The current size is perfect, in my opinion.

    I happen to prefer 7 inch tablet, BUT I like my current set up, 7 inch PlayBook AND 9.7 inch iPad.
