Personally, I'd like a 13" one, considering that it rarely leaves the house. How about you?
10.2 inches .6 lbs
Ideal. Big and light weight
That would be pretty great, I can't wait until the iPad gets that light!
Smaller......somewhere between the size of an iPhone and the size of the current iPad.
I'm hoping the rumors of a 7" iPad come true....
Current size is perfect, although I wouldn't mind if they released an eight inch iPad.
Hmm, 'ideal' is subjective.
I like the current size for home use and out-of-town travel but I would certainly love to have a 7"-8" for toting around town. The current size is a bit too big and a phone is a bit too small.
So I didn't vote, frankly, I want both. If Apple doesn't come out with a smaller one I'll probably spring for the next generation Fire.
wait are we assuming the iPad comes with iOS or the bigger size models have OSX Mountain Lion or something?
EDIT NVM, dumb question.
Assume the all run iOS, though the launchpad would look a bit silly on a table.
7/8 incher for the road and around the home. Have a desktop for the heavy lifting
As i've never held or used any other hardware models it's hard for me to say "I'd love a 7-8 for travel" or "12+ sounds good for in-home use".
The way I look at it is the current size is lighter to carry than a laptop, is more comfortable while laying on the couch, and has enough screen real estate to make me feel like I'm not compromising by using the smaller device.
The 9.7" screen of the current iPad. I wouldn't want it any larger or smaller.
I kinda think I want two now - one that will show an entire 8.5x11 PDF for work purposes, and one just a smidge smaller than the regular one for portability. 8"? 7"? Not sure exactly, since I haven't tried out very many smaller ones.
I would like a 7inch like my playbook (which i never use ). That would be the ideal size for me... 7inch on the go and 9.7inch for home use.
Exactly 9.699983492830948019212893791287398237298374092830912830192840932840938290480923842750394820934802938490238403482093480293849128302 inches.
I have a gut feeling that even if they could make an iPad that light, they may not. It's a fine line between feeling light and feeling cheap. Apple tends to shy away from feeling cheap, event at the cost of extra weight. They could have been using ultra strong lightweight materials for the iPad all along, but they've stuck with metal, even when no one else uses it.
I definitely don't want plastic, but I wouldn't shy away from carbon fiber. About 1 pound would be the ideal weight for the 10inch iPad IMO.
I would say that 8 to 8.5 is the perfect for me.
I have a carbon fiber Gitzo tripod. Steady as a rock. Light as a feather. But it feels like a toy. For a tripod, this is fine. For a luxury tablet device, I think Apple would say it feels cheap.
It could add a huge battery if Apple wanted to. That's my only feature request from the iPad, a week's worth of battery life. The iPad is my go to device these days, and if I didn't have the worry about charging it every night, it would be perfect.
The current 9.7" size is fine with me.
The size now is fine. Not so big that it's unwieldy, not so small that the screen feels cramped.
Weight, on the other hand, is another factor. Get the weight down to 10 or 11 ounces and I'd be a happy camper. Not sure that'll be feasible for a while, though.
1Tb, I have a lot of music and movies...
I think a cheaper 7 inch iPad would sell extremely well. It would be a more convenient size to read books on.
The current size is ideal. I can't imagine reading full-sized pdf books (not ePub) or even browsing the web on a smaller screen. The pages fit perfectly.
