    *RUMOR* Next-gen 7-inch iPad to have Retina Display, 128GB storage
    AppleInsider | Next-gen 7-inch iPad to have Retina Display, 128GB storage - rumor

    If this is true, I already know I will buy one! I've held this hp slab/tablet thing in school, and the screen size(7") feels so right when holding it...even though it was tied down.

    Sort of an "old rumor":

    Below is a link for a rumor article back on August 17th, 2010 mentioning a 7" iPad...but the article you linked seems to be updated with some very interesting additional info.

    I guess I'm a Fan Boy, but you can put me in the camp that I've pretty much already decided I will buy one without having seen it.
    I will caveat that if it is too pricey it may be awhile. My justification is that I love my iPad as an eReader, but the 7in size would definetly be more convenient for travel. In this case though I would probably go just for a Wifi version.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    I would sure hope the 7" is less $$$ than the current 9.7".

    I figure something reasonably between the Wifi Kindle ($139) and the base iPad ($499) would be a good target price. If you average the two you get $319. And, I would probably pay around that for a 7in iPad.

    Anymore and I would have to think about it for quite a while.

    At least wishful thinking is free. $319 is way too good of a price! I would LOVE it to be that low! But I have a feeling they would forever be sold out at that price...
    Though, I do believe the price makes a little bit of sense at that range. Maybe $349 sounds a tad bit better.

    Most definitely! An updated rumor is better than an old one!

    Maybe a 7" iPad release will bring down the price of the 9.7" iPad!

    Gotta remember...if a 7" iPad is released...then there would really be three iPad's:

    - the 9.7"
    - the 7"
    - the 3.5" (aka the iPod Touch)

    haha...they should just just change the name of the current i-touch to ipad MINI, or the current ipad to i-touch GIANT. Works for me.

    Sounds good to me...but there are still folks out there that STILL don't want accept the fact that the:

    - iPad is a BIG iPod Touch
    - iPod Touch is a mini iPad

    This has been my stance since day 1!

    I have to agree that sandwiching a 7in version between the 9.7in iPad and 3.5in iPod may not make good marketing sense . . . but still, I would buy one.

    3.5in is just too small for sustained comfort in reading. I have done it, but the iPad is sooo much better. Lighter would be nicer, though, and I think somewhere between 5 and 8 inch is probably the sweet spot for reading comfort vs weight and handling.

    And I would probably pay $350, but not without some internal conflict and argument.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    You would certainly think that 3 similar devices so close in price would be a tough trick to pull off. If it happens...just shows the power of Apple (Marketing, Advertising, Market Research, R&D, etc.)!

    Could also be an evolutionary step. If the sales of 1 of the 3 falls off...chop...off with it's head!

    I have to agree.
    But that doesn't change the fact that size differentiation is a valid factor in usability. A Television is basically a television regardless of the size, and I see value in the 37in HDTV in my family room as well as the 19in in the kitchen. I don't see one replacing the other. And while I don't really need either one, I like having and use both.

    I have to say I think Apple need to watch out or this might become like the Newton. By that I mean a device with so many different versions of itself it was not funny. Personally I think there is only 2 options that are viable.

    1. Leave things as they are. Ie. No mini ipad.
    2. Have this mini ipad, but call it the new ipod touch. And discontinue the current sized ipod touch.

    And also App developers have to already make apps for 2 sizes of screen. Touch/iphone and ipad. A 3rd version of their apps is a little too much to ask for. And is not really necessary.
