Why a 7″ iPad? You’re kidding right?

SBehold the iPad in All Its Glory

No I’m not surprised that Apple is making a 7″ iPad, after having wrangled the 10″ for a bit I know exactly why.

Look at your hand, now look at the hand of your average sixth grader. See?

The existing iPad, besides not having enough RAM and a camera, is heavy. It’s solid as a Sherman tank, but school kids wrangling them will get worn out. Enter the 7″ iPad with a back similar to the iPod Touch. Lighter, smaller and hopefully much cheaper. Can you say WiFi only for $299? Every school in the country, probably the world will order them and use them. Only one university adopted the current incarnation of the iPad. The next one will be truly disruptive.

So don’t scratch your head over it, just wait. It will be here as soon as the current supply of iPod Touches has been sold down a bit.


About xackr

Xacking is zenhacks through tech (preferably) lo-cost hi-perf tech. Bootstrapping yourself to rockstar status without breaking bank or stones. I started the idea of xacking as being a way to carry flash drives around with all your key stuff. Now you can stick a computer on a stick. I've since drunk the Apple Kool-Aid and explore bang for buck when the initial buyin is HIGH but quality. The secret? Make it last a long time.
