Apple May Beat Rivals with Smaller iPad, Say Experts

Apple is expected to introduce the smaller 7-inch version of the iPad soon, and analysts believe that theCupertinocompany is taking the right steps, even if that is against the wishes of the company’s legendary co-founder Steve Jobs.

The market has changed since Jobs’ death, and Apple’s rivals have successfully launched smaller tablets to take on the bigger iPad. Amazon’s Kindle Fire is already a rage, and now Google is joining the party with its Nexus 7 tab.

Jack Gold, analyst at J. Gold Associates, says that the 7-inch form factor is popular and very useful if you want true portability. He also mentions that these tablets are less expensive and can compete for the lower end of the tablet market.
