It almost came as a shock when Apple released the iPad Mini, featuring a 7.9-inch display. Why was it so odd? Because just a few short years ago, former Apple CEO Steve Jobs stated that Apple had no interest in making a 7-inch tablet. As is turns out, 7.9-inches makes quite the difference, and current CEO Tim Cook is sticking to Jobs’ belief.
“We would not make one of the 7-inch tablets, we don’t think they are good products,” said Cook in an earnings call earlier today, also stating that he believes current 7-inch tablets on the market are “compromised.” We’re not quite sure what Timmy has going through his head right now, but the last time we checked 0.9 of an inch isn’t that big of a difference.
