The iPhone has a 3" screen, a lot smaller than a 5.6" screen, almost 4times.

Not white, not black just passionate shades of grey...

The iPad is fine the way that it is. I don't expect to see another form factor anytime soon.
You already posted that here.

Can you imagine how many sleepless nights that would give manufacturers dedicated e-ink readers - even Amazon?
Let's see, a $189 Kindle 3 with 3G, or a similar-sized iPad for just 10 bucks more; tough call...
I already have a small iPad
it's an iPhone. 7" would be too small to be of use to me.
redundant thread merged into this one.
I honestly can't see a smaller iPad soon after all why would Apple invest in a lot of $$$ on the new iPod touch which will be with us next month then launch a smaller iPad which would have a huge impact on touch sales ......
Any 5.6 and 7 inch Ipads would have to be priced relative to the current 9.7 pad. So my question is, where does the Ipod touch fit into the equation here? If a 5.6 pad costs, say, 250-300 dollars, wouldn't that make getting a 32-64 gb Touch somewhat pointless, as they're in that same $$$ range? Curious to see how this all works out....
I'm guessing it will be phased out.

Neither the current pad or a hypothetical 7" pad fits in your pocket, so I don't know where they're going with this one(shrugs).....
