Screen Sizes of Rumored iPad Mini, iPad, Nexus 7, & Kindle Fire Compared
With all the recent rumors, there is a lot of talk on the tech web about the theoretical iPad mini. If you’ve been assuming the mini’s speculated 7.85″ screen would be about the same as a Kindle Fire or Nexus 7 tablet, you’ve assumed wrong, and as the above graphic demonstrates it’s actually a lot closer to an 8″ screen than 7″, which provides a whopping 40% larger usable screen surface than the 7″ tablet competitors.
Click the image above to see the full sized version, and don’t forget to check out some of the mockups of what a 7.85″ iPad might actually feel like.
Is anyone else increasingly hopeful the smaller iPad comes to market? The idea of a smaller and cheaper iPad is becoming very appealing to me.
