This graphic shows popular tablet screen sizes compared with the rumored ‘iPad mini’ screen size. Tablets include the Kindle Fire (Amazon is rumored to introduce a new generation of the Fire in coming months), Google Nexus 7, current iPad, and the theoretical 7.85-inch iPad mini’s screen. Rounding the screen size, we should actually be calling the purported device a 8-inch iPad.

Rumors are saying Apple will unveil the iPad mini (unconfirmed name) this fall, and that the device will sport a non-Retina 1024×768 display.

    yeah, I can see why…but let’s be honest, the iPad as it stands is satisfying enough to type on, but any smaller? I just don’t think it’s practical.

    Apple will never release iPad mini. This maybe will be new product or something else, but not iPad. Why cult of mac is so stupid??? Steve Jobs mentioned in the announcement of iPad, that 9,7 inch is the best size and everything else – FAIL. Tim Cook and Ive wouldn’t do mistake and go agains Steve Jobs. So stop spreading stupid rumors! :)

    For me, the apect ratio is one of the most important things to understand when comparing an iPad with the Nexus 7. Please follow this link http://bit.ly/QmQuFa with my 50 cents after having played with the device for a week…
