Jobs has a pattern of "dissing" things (ereaders?) on very specific
terms. Later Apple produces something that deals with those concerns.
Hence, as you said, once Apple solves the 7" problem to their
satisfaction, you can expect to see one--question is only when.

What actually surprises me is how the competition always responds to
these complaints. They always ignore them, and don't address the
issues Steve brings up, and then, when Apple finally brings out their
product, the competition is one or three steps behind.... You would
think that _somebody_ would wise up eventually!!!
