I also get releasing a 7" Tab. There may be a niche market of folks that find the standard sized tablet / pad to be too big.....yet their phone's screen is too small. A 7" Tab fits perfect.

What I don't get is releasing the 8.9" Tab with nothing other to offer than a middle of the road screen size. What audience does this play to? Is there another niche market of folks that find the 7" Tab too small but the 10.1 Tab too big?

How big is this market, and does it justify all the additional cost of parts, labor, manufacturing, and overhead?
Choices are a good thing. That's why most of us prefer Android over certain other OS.
To each their own...
