Apple viewed as unlikely to launch 7-inch iPad in 2012 - Page 3

This is not a news flash. This is an investor drone trying desperately to drum up a soundbite. He says nothing that isn't 6 months old. Jobs would be as likely to swerve the pundits years later. Blair is trying to elevate himself by putting himself and Jobs in the same sentence. He adds zero to the equation.

iPod touch and iPhone 5 will go to 4" screens this summer AND ipad2 drops in price when iPad 3 comes out
apple is covered AND developers won't have to deal with the 7" constraints

i think apple will have a value option for people in which the price difference and the much better apple environment (compared to kindle) will negate much of the competition
and continue the momentum

i think an iPad 2 16 at $350 will rock

i see apple filling in the price points

1) If Apple does release a larger iPhone I would expect a larger iPod Touch to come first. I would also expect the Touch in the Winter/Spring and the iPhone in the Autumn. I don't think both updated at the same time makes sense nor has that ever happened.

2) The problem with the $350 year old iPad is that the price drop seems to drastic. And are you saying the 16GB model and not all 18 SKUs? I think that makes it tougher for Apple to support these the way it does the iPhone.

You can't possibly know that. Also, iPhone 6.

I wouldn't get my hopes up for anything less than $399. Apple doesn't have many prices that end in 49.

Hahahaha. Registered just to leave that first ever post for the awful POS Agasio Dropad. Who has the pool whether the IP address is the Agasio office or the distributer's home?

No I'm saying the way Apple makes its products is unique with the amount of effort that goes in to push boundaries, keep redeveloping until somethings perfect and come out with an amazing products. The iPod was amazing and they kept reinventing it each year. But with all there products they seem to reach a point where they just stop. I don't know if it's because the people at the top just loose interest of what but it does happen.

Changing things for the sake of changing them is actually changing them for the sake of improving them. Just adding features doesn't make things better. As in my example with iTunes, it originally was great because it was simple, now it's littered with crap like ping. Which makes me think the people that made it great were to busy making iPads great to stop the destruction of iTunes. Maybe those people now care more about making a tv than repeating an argument on why 7" iPads are a bad idea despite what reasearch says and someone will authorise one because some data says people want it.

Put your money where you mouth is

I bet you $100 there will NOT be a 7" Ipad in first half of 2012. If you won't wager then stop opening your mouth!

Yep. adamrr is Adam Ravat, owner of Agasio. Wasn't too hard to determine it.

(He was a very busy boy on the 24th, shilling for Agasio. At Target for one http://www.target.com/p/iBaby-Monito...3/-/A-13729369. Adam Ravat and Agasio are really this year's version of Jack Drogba and Espow, putting up fake posts in any forum they can in an effort to drum up interest in businesses that they own. I have zero opinion (or knowledge) of the quality of his products or business, but that he posts in this manner is a fact. Couldn't find a forum button for reporting as such, but would be worth banning the IP, IMO.)

the ipad 7+inch is for a car

number one complaint from ford customers is that MS mess they put in the dash of fords, crashing and just doing the MS shuffle

cars want to be associated with the success of the ipad, well
those big screens are for my future car purchase

ford and others need to turn from the dark side and get pads in the cars dash
