Why We’ll see a 8-9” iPad – Because Kids Don’t Need To File Their Finger Down (Plus, They’ve Got Better/Newer Eyes)
First of all, we’re been pecking on our 3.5” iPhone screen for years now and we’re doing just fine. On top of that, Steve Jobs, who’s known for misdirection on what Apple will or will not ship, said that we would have to file down our fingers just to use the icons on them useless 7” screens.
Well, as limiting as those 7 incher screens are as far as screen real estate goes, I can life with a 8 or 9 in because I’ve tried it with the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and it works great.
So, we’ve got years of great multi-touch experience on 3.5” iPhones, not just one finger touch and proof from Samsung that their 8.9” tablet works great, what is keeping Apple from releasing an 8” tablet?
Oh, them fingers that need to be filed down? Don’t worry. 8” iPads would be great for kids. First, they’ll probably be cheaper to make and sell. On top of that, those grade-school kids have little hands and fingers. I’ve been them on my two, five, and eight years old nephews and seven year old niece. Their fingers will work great on an 8” iPad.
So, I’m wagering we will definitely see a sub-10” iPad, maybe not in 2012 but beyond. Keep in mind that when Steve Jobs was blasting away at the Android tablets, he specifically referred to the 7” models. He never said anything about bigger sized screens like an 8 or 9”.
