The first thought that popped into head when I touched the Kindle Fire was that Apple must make a smaller version of its tablet but bigger than its iPhone.
Looks like that thought may come true.
The iPad is made for videos. The Kindle Fire is made for reading. A cheaper 7 inch iPad retina is the next logical iteration, despite Steve Job’s wishes.
There should always be the larger screen option. Not everyone wants portability.
Don’t be surprised if the 7in iPad is also a phone.
