    I understand we will with Gen 5 of iPad perhaps see a huge amount of weight and size reduction, considering that is it possible for iPad to ever have another size?

    I mean I understand demand will be low but is it ever considered? Any rumors? anything around 11"?

    I used a Sony Duo 11 at a store, and while it's ergonomics are not exactly the best I wondered if something like this is possible in the iPad form factor? I truly would love to own something like this, I mean if the 9.7" iPad 5th Gen loses lets say about 150 Grams of weight then is it not possible using similar materials to have a bigger iPad which will have a weight similar to iPad 3/4 but with a larger screen?

    Any pointers?

    An 11" device meant to be held in your hands more often than not? No thanks. Buy a MBAir if you need 11" of screen. I realize that is apples and oranges there, but really, an 11" tablet is nonsense to me.

    It would not surprise me in the slightest if we did happen to see, at some point in future a tabletop based display. whether or not it will be an ipad or something else, i can see something like a drafting table being digital and used for office drudgery to some extent for jobs that need a large display.

    With the 128GB coming out, and 11", it probably be the same price also.

    And Yourself?
    I agree. Seems a little impractical for a tablet with the MacBook Air in the lineup. I know personally I'd take a MBA over an 11" iPad any day!

    How about something which is a giant iPad for most practical purposes, allowing that it's so big that instead of portability, it's just attached to the surface of the desk? Thin, big (>30"), multi-touch, etc. Make a desktop computer which IS the desk's top.
