What if the 7.85" iPad came first? Would you be demanding a bigger iPad?

    I recognize the flaws with asking this question but we've got nothing to do this week but speculate anyway so why not reverse the "9.7in is perfect" defense and pretend it was the other way around? :D

    In 2009, what if the iPad Mini came first?
    - 7.85" Screen
    - 8/16/32/64GB
    - $250 starting price

    So if the iPad Mini came first then would there really be a high demand for a 9.7" size that started out at twice the price ($499)? Would YOU be able to justify it? Is there a specific task that would only work on 9.7" but not on a 7.85? Or would 9.7" seem like a niche product since it decreases portability and raises the cost of ownership?

    The new 10 inch ipad, with its expansive, beautiful screen. It gives so much more room for doing all the things you love, while doing everything exactly as you know. This new ipad is a breakthrough in technology, and will start at 499.

    But seriously. If apple started any smaller than this, people wouldn't have compared it to the netbook. And it wouldn't have killed the netbook. Can you imagine the strange, twisted world we would be sharing with net books in 2012? *shudders*
