Apple again rumored to launch 7" iPad in 2012 - Page 3

I don't think Pocket size increases that much with waist size.

I wear size 32". I don't have a Color nook , but I do have standard CD case jewel case (thicker old style).

I tried every pair of jeans I own and CD Jewel case is not even close to fitting in back pocket of any of them, including two different pairs of Levis.

For wide load types it may fit partially into a back pocket of some jean, but it would seem to be fairly idiotic to carry it that way even if you could jam half of it into a back pocket.

Since I have both the jeans and the Nook Color, I can confirm exactly what I claimed.

EDIT: And just for giggles I confirmed again in a pair of 505 straight-fits. It fits width wise just fine, tho the pocket isn't nearly deep enough for me to trust walking around with it for long.

EDIT2: the original Levi Slim-fits I mentioned were a 36, and not a 34 waist. My bad. The 505 Straights are a 34

So basically this trick with 32" waist or under is impossible. 34" Maybe you can jam it partially in the pocket, but not secure and 36"+ secure?

Still a pointless exercise IMO.

Guess it's pointless to try it in your jeans., and pointless to call BS.

And no, they aren't "jammed " into the 34's, sliding all the way to the bottom of the straight section. Even then that leaves nearly half the Nook above the pocket, which is why I wouldn't walk far that way.

CD Jewel case fits easily in the back pocket of any of my 34" jeans.

My 7" Android tablet? I can jam it in, but it's not easy. Maybe just a little smaller than 7" would be a better format.

They underpriced that book. It should be new from $13.37

Yeah, like 4" or 5", with voice and 3g and we call it a smart phone.

Still the 7.85" rumor is one of the worse ones yet from digitimes, 7.85 might be smaller than a regular ipad, but it won't fit in any pockets but winter parkas, it won't even be that comfortable to hold in one hand. This is real loser size.

If Apple goes to a device between the Touch and the iPad, I think they would lean more toward the smaller end, not the larger, so sub 6", not greater than 7".

Like someone else mentioned, simply a bigger Touch would likely better fit the bill. ~5" version with 3:2 ratio and even the same resolution as the touch would be a great pocket-able that would actually fit in anyone's pocket. Also it wouldn't break any Apple design rules as it would simple be bigger version of what already exists.

I can't see Apple going to a 7" iPad, and frankly I don't care - what I do want to see is an iPad under 400 grams with a high screen res - minimum 1280x800. The current 613g is way too heavy to hold for any length of time for reading in bed or whatever, and while the iPhone is light enough for reading - the screen and resolution are too small.

I read comments like that and don't think people are thinking before posting. You're saying Apple needs to move from a 4:3 to a 16:10 aspect ratio yet you didn't specifically state it yet nothing else can be inferred unless you are suggesting that Apple use odd-shaped pixels.

Bulk up. I have absolutely no trouble holding my first gen, even. it's just a pound and a half and the 2 is even lighter. And I'm seriously absolutely pathetic when it comes to that sort of thing.

Oh man I hope not I just bought a Samsung Galaxy 7,7" for my small tablet needs. If I would have known Apple would release a 7" I would have waited. The 7 inch form factor is great, I first started out with a 7" Nook Color rooted with Miui and I loved it. Then I recently got a 5.3" Samsung Galaxy Note to replace my Apple iphone 4 with a cracked screen. I think these mini tablets are very usefull while I'm on the go and Apple is missing out on this sector. Oh well anyone in the market for a 7,7" tablet made by Samsung, you can even make phone calls on it.
