Wow thats huge

It seems now everytime I see the regular ipad in a commercial or on someone I think wow that thing is huge and out dated. Anyone else feel this way?

Could the mini be the future of iPad?

Small is the new large.

Size does not matter.

Mac laptops come in 11", 13", 15", [and 17"] sizes.

iPads now come in 7.9" and 9.7" sizes. You can argue that iPod touch is the iPad nano at 4" (they run the same O/S).

The 9.7" iPad doesn't seem outdated by virtue of screen size. But it feels awkward by virtue of thickness and weight.

So I think the next-gen full size iPad will be under pressure to slim down.

After a weekend with both I can say that I see the point of both. I feel that the regular iPad is the ideal screen size, while the mini is the ideal weight. I think that both products are compromises, though I think that I prefer the compromise of the mini.
Though I did find myself putting my glasses on to use the mini after about an hour of reading, while I never felt the need to do that with the 10 inch iPad.

Next year the iPad Mini will sell more than the full size iPad.
