    There already is an iPad mini, it's called the iPod touch.

    Seriously, there are rumors going around about it but I doubt these pictures to be true. And there are so many talented designers at Apple that I also doubt they'd repeat a design, even miniaturize one...

    Lol! iPod Touch. That is exactly what I was thinking! I am pretty sure the pictures were just speculative mockups of a scaled down iPad. I don't really see it happening anytime soon because it could fragment the market but who knows!

    There may be a 7 inch next year but not with the features specified in that link.

    Speculation is rife due to analysis of apple's forward ordering which includes 7" touch screens. It's still guesswork though as to how they will be used.
    Frankly after using the iPad's screen I'd be loathe to downsize even if it was more portable.

    Well. Your iPod Touch does not have a 1280x1024 7" screen. If they can get the Retina Display to work on a 7" screen, it's going to be absolutely brilliant.

    You'll be able to read things that you'd never have thought you'd be able to read on a tiny 7" screen.

    I don't think the miniature iPad will be for me, though, because I have to do some typing, and as it is the screen keypad on the 10" iPad is almost too small for me.

    Now...if they can manage to get the Retina Display on the full sized iPad, I will probably have to waste another $1,000 buying the new one. They can't do it with the A4 processor and current PowerVR graphics, but the upcoming A9 multi-core processor will probably be strong enough and run cool enough to be able to do it.

    There are some nice things right around the corner. Great stuff.

    News of an iTablet with total autonomy would get me more excited.

    I wouldn't put any stock in that article/post. It claims to be running OSX mini which by the mock-ups looks like more of a desktop style OS. I seriously doubt Apple would go that route, though I would personally find it very interesting.

    After having the current iPad for several months, I really can't get excited about a 7 inch model.

    OTOH, I'm sure there are people who would like the smaller size, so I hope they build one.

    I'm not sure what would make me upgrade. I like the current display so changes there would probably not convince me. A faster processor and better multitasking would be good, but if that decreased the battery life, I probably would not upgrade.
