Steve jobs was just retarded. His business model of 1 size/price fits all is ridiculous. It alwys sounded like Steve jobs thought in the short term for success and once achieved looked to the long term. Some people just simply want smaller tablets for portability reasons, it would be easier for kids to hold, it should be cheaper, what if a person doesn't have a smart phone but a regular phone and wants something between that and a laptop? What if I have a smart phone and an 11" laptop would I still want a 10" tablet??
Same with the new iphone5 coming out with reportedly a larger screen... I hate apple and all their products except for the iPhone which I own but I do not want an iPhone as large as an android phone!!!!! Android phones are just TOO big! It's like having a 15" CRT monitor in your pocket!!! It is much harder to hold in 1 had for long periods of time reading especially while laying down (I read on my phone a lot in bed, that's how I'm writing this now), and so many other reasons!!!!! It isn't fair they should continue to make phones at the current screen size and introduce the larger one but they won't they know the majority of iPhoners will still buy the original screen size.
One size does NOT fit all.
Go to hell Jobs. Oh wait you're already there.
