  1. Imagine of A5-size paper, it is 10″ screen.
    Then fold it by half, then you get 7″ screen.

    Both of them are possible. 10″ is perfect for reading. Hardly think of what can we do with 7″. it is too big to be inthe pocket and too small for reading.

    Reading website on iPhone is painful already.

  2. I love the BGR, generally I get -20+ dislikes per post. Those silly Droid users. Any hoot, sitting on the toilet last night playing blackjack on this here iPhone I couldn’t help but notice how big my hands would have to be to type easily on a 10 inch tablet. (Hell I already know the difficulty of handling 10 inches…ladies….) but seriously, not that I am not, 7 inches is about as comfortable as a handheld could probably get. I am sure in a year you won’t see too many large tablets.

  3. Broker 1: “Time to make some more money off Apple”
    Broker 2: “We’ll get someone to blog about the Apple Tablet coming out”
    Broker 3: “I’ll get someone to confirm it”
    Broker 1: “OK, let’s buy some stock whilst it is still low”
    Broker 3: “Sounds good let’s sell after the stock reaches $210”
    Broker 2: “Then we’ll start a rumor about Job’s health. We haven’t done that one in a while.”
    Broker 1: “Do you think the SEC will ever catch on to this? This is the easiest way ever to make money”
    Broker 2: “No kidding. Anyway someone’s already paid off the SEC to look the other way so we’re in the clear”

  4. Lol, for once I hope Apple restricts choice to one model because I’d be too indecisive. Do I go with 7 for added portability or 10 for that big, comfortable screen?

    I sort of feel like 7″ is the sweet spot, the perfect compromise. I watch videos just fine on my iPhone so 7 shouldn’t be a problem.

    Steve will probably decide that we only need the 7″ model.

  5. “Both of them are possible. 10″ is perfect for reading. Hardly think of what can we do with 7″. it is too big to be inthe pocket and too small for reading.”

    How is 7″ too small? The Kindle is great for reading with a 6″ screen.

    The Kindle screen is roughly the same size as the pages in a standard size paperback.
