Itty Bitty iPad: Still A Possibility?

Ty Dunitz December 13 Apple

Big Steve would have you believe that Apple isn’t working on several sizes of iPad, and has outright denied rumours that a 7-inch model is on the way. According to Jobs, 7-inch tablets are “DOA”, and we’d have to “sand down [our] fingers to around one-quarter of their present size” just to operate the things.

But lo! Reuters is citing Asian manufacturers who claim that Apple is, in fact, working on a smaller iPad, which we could see drop early next year – perhaps even along the iPad 2.

It’s too early to call, and take what you hear from Asian manufacturers with a grain of salt. Although Steve is pretty well known for obscuring rumours and then surprising us with a fistful of thought-to-be-non-existent product. That said, after suggesting we sand our fingers off, I have a feeling he’d have to invent entirely new buzzwords to sell this thing; ‘magic’ surely wouldn’t cut it.

    I really don’t think Steve would approve something that small… You know, he’s opposing Android tablets as too small, he wouldn’ want to join them and make the iPad smaller.
