    Jobs reportedly said: "There are clear limits of how close you can physically place elements on a touchscreen before users cannot reliably tap, flick or pinch them. This is one of the key reasons we think the 10-inch screen size is the minimum size required
    Really? Amazing how we all manage to touch items easily on the iphone then with its tiny 3.5inch screen

    Apple/Jobs is just rubbishing 7" form factor because they aren't doing one (yet),
    but its all good marketing - which apple is great at.

    What?!
    Surely that'd suggest that the pad is just a 10" touch
    Just amuses me how Jobs will rubbish other companies and products and say there is no market and the current device doesnt need this that and the other, then low and behold what does the next product do...
    I suppose it helps hook people, instead of waiting for the new model for the functions you want they almost push you into a product thats not quite what you want without letting you know whats around the corner..

    Maybe if they got rid of their mahoosive bezel, a 7" iPad would actually have a screen almost the same size as their 10" one.
