Most of your mode of argumentation is whataboutary. At the start you mentioned the iPhone nano. What about the analysts who mentioned the iPhone nano ( well they were wrong, but so what - what do you think this proves about this actual rumour. Nothing).
Now you've moved onto Java.
Thats a crap argument anyway, but in this case it fails even the most basic of logical tests, its bad
whataboutary. Apple are not going to go into the Flash or Java markets, and were never.
What I, and others, are demonstrating here is that Apple ( and, often Jobs) rubbish a hardware format or type of device and then produce that very thing.
There are plenty of reasons for Apple to make this device, the main one is to stop a leaking of a segment of the market from under them. Here is some very bad news for you. Apple are almost certainly
not going to be producing one tablet size,and one phone size in 2020. Its like the iPods. They innovative the platform, and then within the platform. And if not in 2020, why not change now?
And once again I wonder why you follow an innovative company, since you seem to get annoyed when they move onto other devices outside your comfort zone.
