    i'm sorry if anyone has already brought this up....
    but if Apple does release an "iPad Mini", should it have an extra row of apps and a taller screen like the unreleased "iPhone 5"? because then it may be easier for developers to make apps that fit the screens

    What do you mean? A smaller iPad would be, well, smaller than the current iPad. Also, the screen resolution it would use would mean no trouble running any apps made for the iPad.

    What you are actually suggesting is going from the iPad's 1.33 to the iPhone 5's 1.78 aspect ratio. Of course the answer is NO WAY. Apple trying to keep this a simple as possible for developers and reusing the iPad 2's resolution means no new/extra work for developers.

    Also as a reading device 1.33 is much better and I see the Mini as a school heavily marketed device (much like the Apple II). Just like the Touch, get them hooked young and migrate them through the ages.
