Does Apple Really Need A 7-inch Ipad?

Kindle Fire is currently the number one selling non-iPad tablet. It's waaay behind iPad sales figures – but notably waaay ahead of any other Android tablet (It has 54% of the total Android tablet market).
Unless an updated Kindle Fire tablet is released very soon, I suspect that Google's Nexus will rapidly eat into that Kindle Fire market lead.

Amen to that. When I went to the retina display iPad from my iPad 2, I was (and continue to be) amazed at how much more readable it is. It combined with 4LTE is what made me give up using my laptop.

For the most part I agree with him, but the reality is that there is a market for a well priced 7" tablet and an Apple 7" tablet could cost $50 more than the equivalent Nexus 7 and easily outsell it.

I think you nailed it right on the head here so to speak. Call it a iPod Touch max? or iPod touch jumbo???, As per Steve's wishes it will not be a smaller iPad, Apple will not succumb to external pressures as we would like to think, however, to make a bigger iPod touch will not interfere with Steve's decree, of a 7 inch iPad.
as as you correctly pointed out, the touch is in need of a update and it makes sense to make the touch bigger, will it be 7inches? nope Apple will come up with a different size and factor, after all the iPad is not a 10 inch display its 9.7 inches to be exact. so any bets on a 6.7 inch?

With taxes going up. Economy going down who cares about ipad or any other product. We are just going to buy what we NEED.
If IPAD could drive the price of others down.. good for me.. I will be able to spend less for what I need to make more money. Moreover we don't really need to worry about repair.. just change it.

I am planning to buy the nexus 7 for my daughter when it comes out. There is no necessity to spend more than necessary and worry more about keeping it working and safe.

The Kindle Fire is not an equivalent to the iPad. It's more of a eReader with a color screen that can do some other stuff. The markets aren't the same, plus they're giving them away. Jobs could easily have said "a 7-inch tablet is DOA, unless they give them away"
