We’ve all seen the Apple iPad, and you’ve probably seen how big the iPad is compared to other tablets like the Amazon Kindle Fire and the Google Nexus 7. Is making a smaller sized iPad the next logical thing for Apple to do?
Personally, I think a smaller iPad would be interesting, because it would allow more portability to the iPad as well as allowing business men to keep all there notes in a smaller tablet. But, I do not think a 7.85 inch “iPad Mini” would catch on as much as people think it would. An iPad combines a computer with a iPod touch, and when you try to make that product smaller, you just end up with a bigger iPod touch. Also, why would Apple need to make a smaller iPad? The iPad is still leading the tablet market, so why make another alteration? I do not think making a smaller iPad is worth it, but thats just my opinion. While Apple is rumored to be making a smaller iPad to rival the Kindle, Amazon is planning to make its own smartphone. Even if Amazon tries they’re hardest, they will never take the smartphone business from Apple.
