    Yes I typed it out in a word doc. I will be willing to send the pic to anyone and a pic of the hat with the logo and a tape measure and somebody else get figure it out if im off. Just hear me out? BTW I said video instead of pic. Sorry 11PM typing.

    And by NO MEANS did I accurately measure this but its pretty rough estimate. But how could i be off by sooo much that it would bring it to around the rumored 7.85 (?) inch screen?

    That's just the normal 9.7" iPad. Assuming he has similar sized hands to me.

    Also, since you're guessing it's 5" tall (wide, landscape), then that fully grown adult man would have ridiculously small hands. If he stretched out his right hand, it should just touch the top of the iPad in that orientation in his current grip. The rumoured iPad 'mini' is 5.3", about 2" shorter than the size of my hand.

    In other words: either everyone in that photo is a midget, and the room is designed for short people, or that's just a normal iPad.

    And use [ timg][/ timg] tags please.

    The iPad measures 7.31" wide (the short side). My hand is about 8" long from tip of middle finger to my wrist. His hand could easily span from the top to the bottom on the short side.

    It doesn't look like a 7" iPad. On the other hand, that guy should be punched in the taint for actually bringing an iPad to a ball game to take pics. IMHO of course.

    Plus if you had paid any attention in elementary trigonometry class, you'd know that working Pythagoras' theorem, you can't produce a 6" tall tablet from a 7" diagonal screen . Sorry :eek:

    Thats a regular ipad. I just held my nexus 7 in my hand and my hands like way bigger in comparison to the way the guys hands in the photo look.

    That's a regular 9.7" iPad. And iOS 6? The iOS 5.1 update changed the camera to have the transparent bar at the bottom.....

    It doesn't look like there was a railing or wall, why didn't you get closer?

    Haha, I'm curious about this too. Besides seeming like a weirdo if the guy noticed you, what made you hold back?

    Apparently what the OP saw was a larger version of the iPad Mini...

    And not to be rude, but it seems that many people out here don't realize how small a 7" tablet actually is.

    Looks like a regular iPad. The iPad mini as rumoured will have a 7'' screen which would make it wider than tall. That looks like the normal iPad.

    Why spend $200 on an iPod touch, when you could get the fabled iPad mini for $250? If you really need a small media player, get the nano.
