    Now that the family ties are clear between the 9.7" iPad and the 3.5" itouch, it seem like there could be room for more size options. I don't think smaller works, but options between the models make sense. What would like to see?

    If it was 1/2" thick and was 2lbs.. ok :) lol

    I'd honestly like to see a 12" or 13" version. I'll deal with it's current size, but once it's too big for your pocket... go big or go home. Although 40" simply may not fit in my car, otherwise sure :)

    I voted for 7". With a 4x6" screen (or so) and a narrow bezel it would still be narrow enough to hold with one hand (across the width).

    People are going to be shocked at the size of the iPad. It really isn't that big. I'd prefer a 12" size, but just maybe the 9.7" screen will fit in my front hoodie pocket, or cargo shorts side pocket in the summer, lol.

    I think it's perfectly fine. The sizes suit each device perfectly. I hope the iPhone has a 4" screen though.

    Other - 10" version where the screen (non-touch) is hinged to a keyboard, with a few USB ports, ethernet, glass trackpad and HDD. Oh, and running Snow Leopard. ;)

    52"

    That's about the right size to weight ratio to make it a fairly mobile device and the hi-def on it would be mind blowing :p
