Is there a rumour about the screen on iPad 2 is going to be smaller?

    I thought I read that somewhere but don't really remember. If so, in my opinion that'd be a huge letdown even if it is retina and faster. I mean that's what the iPod touch/iPhone are basically.

    It might even put me off altogether and I'd just pick up a 1st gen refurb instead.

    There was briefly, but Jobs shot that down by basically saying tablets under 10" suck

    Anything less than a 10" screen is too small. I'm glad to hear that Steve decided against this.

    Same. Once I saw and held the Galaxy Tab, it just felt too small to use like a tablet. It really feels just like a giant ass phone.

    You make it sound like they'd discontinue the 10" models. Unlike the iPhone, the iPad should be much more versatile.

    I have the Galaxy S phone, and I'm here to tell you, it IS a giant ass version of a phone.

    There is also a rumor that it will be bigger. Average the rumors and you will know the size won't change.

    It is just a smaller crappier Tab.
