    I have seen several articles stating that a Digitimes Senior analyst believes that Apple is going to release a 5 to 7 inch version of the iPad in early 2011.

    The iPad mini should have a price tag of between $300 and $400 and target people who are mainly interested in reading.

    Do you think that this signifies that Apple is preparing to directly take on all of the other eReader devices and dominate the eBooks market the same way that it did the MP3 one?

    Any thoughts?

    I wouldn't buy an iPad mini. That would pretty much be an iPhone. I hope that in June the iPhone gets a bigger screen then there would be no reason for an iPad Mini... Amiright?

    Too small for eBooks though as all of the current 3.5" screen devices are.

    True...I guess it's possible that Apple could being something out at the 7" size but TBH I couldn't really see it happening. 1024x768 at 7" would sure look sweet though.
