    What do you think of this mockup for the "iPad mini"?

    - Thin side bezels like the iPhone
    - Thicker bezels on top and bottom to accommodate home button and possible camera
    - Half the size of the iPad (height = width of iPad, width = half height of iPad)
    - Bigger screen surface than Kindle Fire (by ~25%)
    - Same thickness as iPad (~30% thinner than Kindle Fire)
    - Same width as the Kindle Fire
    - Shorter height than the Kindle Fire
    - Same resolution as iPad 1 and 2 (1024 x 768)

    - Only problem is that the screen size would measure out to be 7.5 inches (using 4.5 x 6 inches) not 7.85 inches

    Doubtful to say the least.

    Apple wouldn't be daft enough to produce a tablet that can't be held by the sides, since your fingers / hands would be touching the screen to hold on to it.

    Sure, but at that width, a wide bezel isn't required to accomplish that.

    Here is an image comparison for the 7.85 inch display; it is slightly larger than the Kindle Fire.

    I think I would prefeer this configuration as otherwise it just isn't enough smaller than the iPad

    That is one monster hand you have in that picture. I have a Kindle Fire and you cannot hold it that way.

    I agree with sekazi. I just took a tape measure to my hands and I would not be able to grip the iPad from the sides like in that picture.

    Ok, I got it from an Amazon image that is perhaps not a real Kindle Fire. So here is a real photo.
