    That sounds more reasonable than other rumors, but still earlier than I would expect.

    I could see them bumping up the RAM but I'm not sure about Apple releasing 7" tablet. For one Apple does not like to carry lots of different Sku's.

    This is being extrapolated from Apples forward buying of chips etc. from far eastern suppliers.

    Secrecy is well and good if kept in house but it's hard to keep suppliers quiet.

    I agree 9.7 or 10" is the right size for a tablet, although there are probably people would like something a little smaller 7inch, or a little bigger, 12 inches.

    I would like to see them add a internal SD card reader.

    My son hates the 9.7" screen and is limited by his iPod Touch's small screen. It's a question of portability, he would "wear it".
    Still, if you look at the ebook readers out there, the popularity of portability is important. Five to six inches is the norm. An iPad in those sizes would be popular too.

    What we need is a 12" iSlate...:D

    I dont see how a 7" screen is any more portable than a 10". You still cant put it in your pocket and have to hold it in your hands.

    A five to six inch is portable. My Sony Reader is a six inch and fits beautifully in a shirt pocket but I never carry it that way, I'm afraid of breaking the screen and it does need both hands to operate...
