7" iPad ain't a bad idea. Some people like it smaller. Also, with that price it will be a true killer in d tablet Industry. If the rumor is accurate, starting at $200 for 8GB then it will wipe out all other tablets. Amazon, Samsung, hp, dell's tablets will die.

I doubt apple will release a 7" iPad as if you want something smaller to the iPad but similar you can buy a iPod touch a 7" iPad would effect sales

I too can't see what Apple would gain from this. They have phenomenal profit ratios on their products, so what's to be gained by a "race to the bottom"? Selling a cheaper, crapier product just hurts the sales of your better, more profitable products. No one wins when you do that. Let Google have the low end market, it gives people choices while not hurting Apple in the least.

Doesn't make sense unless iphone is released this summer. They wouldn't want any other product cannablizing sales. IF (big if) a 7" ipad were to be released it'd be on its own. Either summer release with iPhone in sept/oct or in sept/oct with iphone this summer. I could see why analysts would think it's be released late fall for christmas but analysts aren't looking at the whole picture here and have been throwing out constant guesses waiting for one to stick.
