I have an iphone 4s, an ipad 2 and 15" MBP also I have a Windows 7 PC with 22 inches LCD monitor so I don't think I need a BIGGER iPad!

I think considering that the new iPad shell is alot smaller, there isn't any room for a bigger screen.

Although I do wish they would increase the 9.7" size to a 10" screen, retaining the same aspect ratio.

The end result would be increase of 6.1% larger area or roughly 3"(square) of screen space. It would also have perfect dimensions of 8" width and 6" height totally to a screen size 48"(square), instead of 7.76" width and 5.82" height, giving a total of 45"(square)

Looking from a manufacturing process, it could also mean easier work, and chances to have better precision and yield, since the sizes are perfect rounded numbers. The other advantage is Sharp's IGZO tech has been perfectly designed for the exact 10" tablet.

With a slightly new Mini-inspired design, they could easily add increase the size without making it too bulky, as the bezels have become thinner and the overall design is smaller. the only issue would be the weight from the increased use of more glass.

So what do you think? Will it be worth it? Chances of it coming?

Whole numbers have nothing to do with precision, yield, or ease of work. A 9.7" screen is no different than a 10" screen.

I wouldn't mid an iPad with a full 8.5x11 screen for reading, docs, etc - but I think it'd have to be a bit thinner and the same weight as now (or less) so I'm guessing that's a couple years out.
I would love to have a full 8.5x11 screen too.
The iPad is almost too small for what i need it.

Those cheesy AppMates companies could do their game pieces and you could play checkers and stuff on it. All kinds of fun.

I'd build a new house just to be able to build a room with a display in every wall.

For me, the current iPad screen size is perfect.

Perfectly fine as is (iPad 3).

Same goes for the border around the display. The amount if space is fine, for me at least.
