hmm, really? launch the 7-inch iPad by Christmas! Great news to some degree.
Well, I think the 9.7 inch screen must be more popular for enjoying movies and videos, u know one of the top features of iPad is movie watching. At least now Im sucked in enjoying kinds of videos and movies with iPad, though some times need in the help of iPad video converter from iFunia for lack of flash support.
But on the contrast, the 7-inch also have market I bileve, as it will be lightter than the 9.7 inch one, it's really a little heavy to keep around.
