During the Q4 Apple earnings call, Cook addressed words spoken by Steve Jobs in the past regarding a 7-inch tablet:
On comments that Steve made before about 7 inch tablets, let me be clear, we would not make one of the 7 inch tablets, we don’t think they’re good products, we’d never make one.
In case you’re wondering what Steve Jobs said about the 7-inch form factor, here’s his original quote:
7-inch tablets are tweeners: too big to compete with a smartphone and too small to compete with the iPad. ….7-Inch tablets are dead on arrival.
Jobs had more to say in his day about the smaller tablet:
While one could increase the resolution to make up some of the difference, it is meaningless unless your tablet also includes sandpaper, so that the user can sand down their fingers to around one-quarter of their present size. Apple has done expensive user testing on touch interfaces over many years, and we really understand this stuff.
There are clear limits of how close you can place physical elements on a touch screen, before users cannot reliably tap, flick or pinch them. This is one of the key reasons we think the 10-inch screen size is the minimum size required to create great tablet apps.
How the deaded Steve Jobs was wrong...
Ipad Mini is doing great, copying the smaller Android Tablets smaller sizing than 10 inches.
I Pad sales are down, screen orders to a minimum with some companies.

It would've been fun to see if Jobs would've ate his words and made the mini.

I have an android and the thing that pisses me off is it doesn't group text like the iphone. I downloaded the app sms pro but that app is retarded sometimes.
