Good piece by MG Siegler on the growing speculation about a smaller iPad.
No doubt some will say that Apple is responding to the Google Nexus, but Apple will have had this in the pipeline for a long time.
I’ve long been sceptical of Apple’s need to enter the smaller tablet market but when you look back at the iPod, Apple has history of releasing an initial device and then creating new variations to reach different audiences.
For me, the current size is just perfect. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t want the smaller device. But there’s no doubt that there’s many who would. And Apple is unlikely to ignore them when there’s money to be made!
