Separate names with a comma.

iPad Mini just sounds horrible, I'm calling the name now - iPad Air.
It'll just be iPad as in 8 inch iPad and 10 inch iPad.
He's saying ipad air cause that's what 9to5 mac suggested
It only makes sense if it's truly ultra thin.
I go with Nano, following the iPod line.
Stole from Gruber.
I'm not a big fan of the "mini" moniker myself. I always think of the dead iPod instead of the entry-level Mac. Air is stretching it because its not like it will be way lighter than other tablets its size. Nano seems dumb because it won't really be that small.
Thankfully Apple hires people to name this stuff who are much better than me.
What if is just called an iPad? There'll just be the iPad lineup like the iMac or MacBook Pro - 21 or 27 / 13 or 15?
With the iPad it'll be - 7 or 9? And then it wouldn't be given stupid names like iPad Mini or iPad Air or even iPad Nano (which will confuse most customers with the iPod Nano I'm assuming).
No doubt this will be paper thin.
No one likes mini for the 7" ipad?
Maybe they should call the big one the Maxi
Maxi iPad for those times when you need a full size screen
Mini iPad for those times you don't
Who says Apple aren't marketing geniuses. Personally though I think iTab is just right.
...so you want a maxipad? LOL
MacBook Pro 13.3" = MacBook Pro 13
MacBook Pro 15.4" = MacBook Pro 15
iPad 7.85" = iPad 7
iPad 9.7" = iPad 9
they have to round down to avoid being sued
So your assuming two things,
1) I am a male
2) That I've read the 9to5mac article
hmm don't make an ass out of yourself.
As long as they don't reinvent the iPad Nano every year like they do the iPod Nano. I really wanted a watch
13.3" = MacBook Pro 13
15.4" = MacBook Pro 15
but 7.85 rounds to iPad 8
and 9.7 rounds to iPad 10
Mistake about the male or female but yes you read it heard of it from another article.
I can guarantee they will not use numbered suffixes.
If Apple had decided to not ridicule the many poor Americans who bought cheaper Android tablets and also those who wanted a book sized tablet to read Kindle books they'd have owned this segment with an "iBook" tablet that even now would have been giving Apple much needed good PR with low income school kids having text books via the Apple iBook tablet...instead of reading about underage Tiny Tim's of Foxconn working alongside the Suicide Watch indentured slaves fresh from the barrack showers.
the iBook makes the most sense: free text books for all children and like Amazon Prime a free loan of a book every month.
As it is: the iPad will sell millions but the iPad 3 will suffer a catastrophic lack of sales unless we have the iPad 3.5 with a better screen and CPU with new dock to counter Windows 8 RT Surface that despite all the laughter and ridicule are showing signs of selling a few.
Anyway, it should be called the iBook.
There is no way it will be called that. It will remain iPad, with some sort of suffix.
Definitely sounds better than mini.
Ipad junior? Yikes
It's tha lil'iPad, braw.
I've been partial to Nano myself.
I thought you would be bright enough to realize that I have not read about or heard about the speculation of that particular name. With that being said, you could make yourself useful and provide a link to this article you speak of. And I am a male.
The big sized for when you can find a place to put it, typically home at night, and the small one for the times when you are mobile outside.
So I call:
Full sized iPad: iPad (night use)
Small iPad: iPad (daytime use).
Ipad HD anyone?
Except that it's not really HD at 1024x768, as HD starts at 1280x720.
If you have an iPhone and an iPad, what are you supposed to do with an iPad Mini? And if you don't, you're exactly the target group for this thing. From that, I can safely assume that most of us on MR are rather interested in the 4th generation iPad than a mediocre (as compared to the full-blown one, not to it's competitors) shrunken-down one.
How about "Da little bitty ipad" ?
