The world is ready for a 7inch iPad. So Apple why don’t you just do it? As reported in tabletPCPower.com the Google Nexus 7 is a great little tablet pc but there are better ones out there. The Asus MeMo 7 could have been a contender for dominance of the 7inch Android tablet market but it looks like the nexus may have stymied the development of that great little tablet computer. Not to worry there are plenty of other great 7 inch tablets and the one that is formost in my mind would have to be the Samsung Galaxy tab 2 (7.0) which now runs Android 4.0 ICS. Pricing for this little tablet is still a little high at about $250 but we should see a dramatic drop in price now that the Nexus 7 is on the scene.
As much as I love my Android tablets and I have 3 of them at the moment. I am still gravitate towards my wife’s iPad from time to time. The experience of using the iPad leaves me a little bit conflicted. Whilst I am not an Android fanboy at all, I do tend to prefer the freedom that the Android tablets seem to offer. I really don’t like being locked into proprietary web sites and shopping experience. Having said that Android is efinitely moving closer to the Apple model of the online world and it is starting to get harder to distinguish between the two.
So this got me thinking would I buy a 7 inch Apple iPad? Yes I think I would. I am finding myself using my 7 inch Android tablets more and more these days and in fact will sometimes put my sim card into a 7 inch tablet and leave my Samsung Galaxy S2 at home. this depends on what I have to do that day. If I am have a highly mobile day then the phone comes with me. However if I am going to be sitting around a lot then the tablet becomes my phone for the day. Would I do the same with a 7 inch iPad? Yeah I would in fact I would probably do so more than with the Android. 7 inches is perfect for reading books, pdf’s, even the articles I have stored at Google docs. It would fit in one hand as my current Android tablets do and its crisp display would make reading a pleasure. Assuming of course that it got the same retina display as the New iPad. So Apple yes the world is ready for a 7 inch Apple tablet pc, give us one! Hmm I wonder what they will name it? iPad nano anyone?
