The Kindle Fire didn't prove there was a market for a 7in device. When compared to the sales of the iPad 2, it didn't stand a chance. You have to be kidding with that statement.

No one's comparing it to the iPad. Amazon sold nearly 5 million in its first quarter. I'd say that's a demand.

I think a 7" model is very likely.

I suspect though that they will not call it an iPad. I suspect it's the next generation of iPod Touch. SJ was so aliment that a 7" tablet wouldn't work that out of respect I don't think they would want to call it an iPad.

A smaller iPad is not something I'd really be interested in personally. The iPad I have is just "a little not quite" big enough" and my iPhone is fine for everything else.

If the screen resolution would be another size for app developers to have to develop for, I wouldn't think that this would happen. If they resolution would stay 1024x768 then it would be a slam dunk. Save Retina Display for the v2 and you'd have the same plan as the regular iPad. Apple's in the market to make money and there's money to be made in the 7" tablet world.
