WSJ Confirms Reports of an iPad Mini

Two of the people said that the tablet's screen will likely be smaller than eight inches. The iPad's screen measures 9.7 inches, unchanged since the first model was released in 2010.

Please let it include GPS/Glonass. Just shrink the screen, no HiDPI to keep cost downand 8Gig is plenty.
